A Crag Guide gives an extensive view of all sub areas and climbs at a point in the index. It shows a snapshot of the index heirachy, up to 300 climbs (or areas) on a single web page. It shows selected comments climbers have made on a recently submitted ascent.

At a minor crag level this should be suitable for printing and taking with you on a climbing trip as an adjunct to your guidebook.

Long/Lat: 11.413755, 49.770737

Unique Features And Strengths:

a 40m North face in the middle of a village will distinguish this from most crags we came across so far.

Description:

Grades range from 6+ to 9 and almost all the climbs deserve stars. a lot of the climbs are by Stefan Löw.

Access Issues:

The crag is not on but above private property. the owners are afraid of rocks hitting, so be really careful and watch loose rock!

Approach:

Drive into Pottenstein, and Park reasonable in town, the crag is hard to miss.GPS: 11.41383, 49.77079
