The tiny town of Reipertsgesee in the evening. Thi...
Reipertsgesee is a little village in the Frankenjura. When you walk into the forest behind Reipertsgesee, you'll find 3 crags separated by 100m or so. The climbing is on nice, grippy limestone pockets and stays cool in the summer. All of the walls offer plenty for the moderate climber, and you shouldn't have a problem with crowds. The main disadvantage to these crags is that they tend to take a while to dry after a rain.
To get to Reipertsgesee from a major city, take the A9 to Exit 47 and drive through Spies towards Betzenstein/Hetzendorf. At the intersection take a right and then your first left. You'll be in Reipertsgesee. Near the beginning of the village you'll see a bus stop on your left. Park here or in the little parking lot behind the pond. Get out and walk down this road across the field and into the forest. The crags take between 5 and 10 minutes to reach, and the path is flat and easy. The GPS coordinates point directly to the parking area directly next to the pond.
Would be better if it wasn't defined. In order to get the 5.12a rating, you have to stick to the bolts. Stemming out to the right is verboten! (forbidden) Nevertheless a very cool route which climbs up good pockets. One free tip which won't ruin your onsight is to chalk up before grabbing that undercling, especially if it has rained in the past few days....[more]Browse More Classics in International
