Description 

This is a really fun crag that's a good solution for Winter because it gets direct sunlight. However, it only has about 10 routes on it, without getting too creative. So it could easily become crowded, though the walk and climbing season work as a deterrent to keep it from getting too crowded.
The routes here range from UIAA 4 to 9-. However, the majority of routes are hard 5.10 and 5.11. The rock is compact limestone with a few small pockets and crimps, along with two crack climbs.


Getting There 

Get to Plech. From Nürnberg you can take the A3 to the A9 North (toward Dresden) and exit at Plech. Drive into Plech and one of the options for leaving Plech will be to drive towards Hormersdorf. On your way out, you'll see a sign on the left indicating you're leaving Plech, and in about 650m you'll see a paved road on the left. Turn here and drive on this road for 500m until it levels off. Park on the right and make sure you leave room for the farmer's tractor to get out.
From here you have two options. Option 1 is the one described in the book and you can see the crag as you're approaching it, but it's slightly longer. Option 2 is the one which is described in the pictures below. Each walk is about 10 minutes, though Option 2 is likely slightly shorter.
Option 1: Walk downhill on the road in the same direction that you were driving for about 200m when you will see a path following the edge of the forest. Follow this path for 500m to the crag.
Option 2: Go around the gate and walk up this road. At the second gate, turn right. Walk about 150m or so and you'll see a small path heading down to the crag.


Name of the Crag 

The name of this crag means "Nice view". All of the routes here are called "Schön" something. Schön in German means nice, pretty, beautiful, lovely, etc.

This technical climb navigates up through small pockets and crimps and requires good balance and footwork. The crux is at the small bulge. This is possibly the best climb here....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Turn somewhere around here and go downhill and around to the crag. The crag is actually hidden by the trees in this picture, but it's right there.
