Relatively normal climbing scene at the Rote Wand....
A sunny, tall, and pocketed wall. It's short approach time and great routes make it also a climber's favorite. In the morning it's cool and shady, but on hot summer days it becomes very difficult to stay dry as the sun comes around in the afternoon and shines directly on the wall.
The tallest routes are 30 meters, but there is a grassy band in the middle above an overhang, and these 15 or so routes end before the grassy band at about a hight of only 15 or 20 meters.
The name means "Red Wall".
Walk to the right end of the parking lot and follow the little path to the creek. Cross the foot bridge and head to the right. After about 50 meters you'll see steps on your left leading straight up to Rote Wand.

: ... : Rote Wand
Awesome route which climbs straight up the right side of the wall. The first bolt requires some serious mental control to reach since it's about 25 feet up and in the overhang, but the climbing really isn't that difficult (5.9ish?). The runout to the 3rd bolt is also huge, but on easier climbing. Sling it long, and let yourself relax if you need to because it starts getting harder at the 4th bolt, getting to the 5th bolt is the crux, and staying on the route through the 6th bolt is also not easy...[more] Browse More Classics in International
