Brüchige Wand


Large crag with lots of classic routes that have an alpine feel to them. The rock quality is not as bad as the name suggests, there are some worthwile routes to be found.


With around 35 meters, Brüchige Wand is the largest crag in the Todsfelder Tal and offers some generous lines in the lower grades with alpine feel.

Most routes have been re-equipped over the last few years, but the nature of the classic climbs was kept, so you might want to bring some nuts and slings.

Parking is provided in front of the church in Thuisbrunn. From there, walk north past the graveyard and church and then turn right onto the path leading into Todsfeld valley. The crag will be visible after a few minutes. Follow the path until you are directly opposite the wall, then walk down over the small bridge and across the grass. A small path leads up to the foot of the crag. GPS: 11.26163, 49.69181
