Summary

A lonely rock in the forest with a decent selection of routes from 4+ to 7-.

Description

The rock quality varies a lot, so wearing a helmet is recommended. Also, even though the routes have been re-equipped, there are still some larger distances between bolts, so have some mobile protection ready. Take care to not place nuts behind one of the many loose blocks, though!

Access issues inherited from Frankenjura Nord

Seasonal closures for protected birds

Zoning concept

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

Please respect signs and zoning list

Approach

Drive from Roßdach towards Wattendorf; park on the left 100 m after you leave Roßdach. Walk across the street and follow an overgrown path to the left along the forest. Before the path widens and enters the forest, there is another small track leading right. Follow this one: it turns left into the forest and up the hill after a few meters, and leads directly to the crag.

Ethic inherited from Frankenjura Nord

  • The limestone is soft – please clean your shoes from dirt in order to avoid polished handholds and steps.
  • Don't toprope directly through bolts – use your own material.
  • Clean chalk and tickmarks with a brush.
  • Don't leave toilet paper.
  • Pick up rubbish.
  • No unnecessary noise.
  • No camp fire and bivvy.
  • Park considerately (tractor should be able to pass also at the weekend).
  • Smoking in the forests is forbidden from March 1 until October 31 by law.
  • No publishing of boulder blocks.

History

View historical timeline

In 1932, Hans Kraus from the German Alpine Club (section Bamberg) made the first ascent of the "Bindelweg", which used to be a long traverse through the wall, in remembrance of Dr. Karl Bindel, director of the club section between 1895 and 1908.
