The most popular climbing area in Frankenjura. There are almost 50 routes here ranging from UIAA 2 to 9+ (5.1 to 5.13a), so there is definitely something for everyone. This is also a very kid friendly place and it even has a nice port-a-potty with a mirror and no stink! Amazing! While there is obviously bound to be some polish on the holds of the most popular crag in the Frankenjura, the routes are all VERY good quality. The rock is very pocketed allowing for lots of great holds.
Driving here is also relatively uncomplicated. From Nuremberg, take the A9 to the Plech exit (Exit 46). Head towards Plech. After driving through Plech, head towards Neuhaus and stay on this road through Höfen. After leaving Höfen, continue straight for approximately 1.5km until you see a turn-off on the left which is probably full of cars already. You'll also be able to see the rock from here. Drive past the exit of the loop and enter on the Eingang side to park here. Get out and walk straight up to the route you want to do. You may have to wait in line...

One of the classic overhanging, juggy Kurt Albert routes. Very easy to get lost on - so print the picture when you decide to do this. This very pumpy route climbs on nothing but jugs, but due to the million possibilities, you might end up falling anyway. Should you do so, make sure your belayer knows how to do a dynamic belay because slamming into the wall when falling off the top isn't very pleasant. The crux is the pump, but also knowing where to go is key. SPOILER: When at the last bolt, it's...[more] Browse More Classics in International
