"Die Wachau und die angrenzenden Gebiete des Waldviertels und Dunkelsteinerwalds sind reich an auffälligen Felsbildungen, die auch frühzeitig das Interesse von Kletterern geweckt haben. Allgemein findet der Kletterer überwiegend Reibungskletterei und oft sehr knifflige und anstrengende oder kleinstgriffige Wandkletterei. Echte Rißkletterei ... ist eher selten, doch lassen sich viele ... zu Rißkletterei umfunktionieren." (1982 Wandern und Klettern in der Wachau / Gerhard Rumplmair (NÖ Pressehaus))
