When it became apparent in 1990 that the climbers in Baden-Württemberg would lose a large part of their climbing possibilities due to the expected biotope protection law, about 100 climbers spontaneously joined forces and founded the IG Klettern Donautal / Zollernalb. What happened in the following years exceeded the worst fears: Climbing in the great outdoors was strictly forbidden in Baden-Württemberg, exceptions were allowed by the district administration offices in order not to completely kill the climbing sport.

So you should pay attention to some things so that the ranger doesn't have to blame you:
You see, there are not even 10 commandments. We wish you a relaxed climbing in the Däle!
