The name of this crag is actually good to know, both because it's aptly named and also because if you get sick or injured while visiting Germany, you may need to visit the Krankenhaus (Hospital). Fels means "crag" or "rock".
The rock is pretty friable and the routes stay damp to wet for a long time. There are two 6+s, one 7-, two 8+s and a 9- listed in the guidebook. It seems that the project has also been ticked, but I can't find information as to the difficulty. There also seems to be another new route, and lots of boulder problems and traverses. This crag isn't really worth a visit.

Getting There 

From Ebermannstadt, drive towards Moggast. After 2.1km you'll reach a parking lot with a Hiker's Board (with map of the trails) on the right hand side. Park here and continue walking uphill for 60m. Take the dirt road (more like a grass road now) on the left and you'll see the crag after 70m. Hike directly uphill to it. From car to crag: 5min.
