Some worthwhile climbs in the 8 grade and some very short and steep recent additions make this a crag suitable to strong and elsewhere bored locals. Lots of trees will keep it mostly cool in summer.


Not the crag you will take your overseas visitors to. It might still be worthwile if you look for a few routes in the 8-grade range, these routes certainly look best. There is drinking water from a fountain near the road.

Zoning concept

  • Zone 1: NO climbing
  • Zone 2: climbing on existing routes
  • Zone 3: new route possible

Please respect signs and zoning list


Drive from Behringersmühle towards Waischenfeld. A few km after Schottersmühle you will find a small sign on the left with "Riesenburg" and anoher 100m a bigger parking lot on the right (next to a little stone building), park here. Walk across the river and turn right on the walking track. 200m down the valley you will see the crag on your left; scramble up the hardly visible track (50m) GPS: 11.29882, 49.80401

The first route here, follow the ring bolts. The glue-ins in the line are new and do not belong to the route. Take a sling for the rock tunnel after the second ring if you want to climb the original.
