Description

High, classic tower throning over the first houses of the village Wolfsberg. First climbed probably before 1900 and with over 30 routes ranging from UIAA 2 to 9-, the rock is one of the most popular crags in the Trubach valley.

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

Park at the sports field of Wolfsberg. Cross the street and follow the small road uphill into the village to the right for 50 meters. Then take a sharp left; after a few meters, a small path branches off to the right, leading to the rock.

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 bolt - use your own carabiner.
  • Clean chalk and tickmarks with a brush.
  • Don't leave toilet paper
  • Pick up rubbish
  • No noise
  • No camp fire and bivvy
  • Park considerately (tractor should be able to pass also at weekend)
  • Smoking in the forests is forbidden from 1. march til 31. october by law.
  • No publishing of boulder blocks

Grade Route

FA: Gabi Menning, 2001

climbs the exiting blade at the top!

if you don't know how to jam add a grade..

starts on the left side of the wall, can be climbed as an individual pitch ending in the middle, or extended to the top via "Solleder" or "Oma Eichler" at Grade 6

Easy alternative beginning for the routes starting on the ledge.

FA: Matthias Engelhardt, 2004

gets hardly ever done but it has a very good top section on fantastic rock!

FFA: Jürgen Kollert, 1998

the inspiring looking Arete high up

FFA: R. Borschert, 1997

an absolute classic testpiece for the grade

FFA: Kurt Albert †, 1981

this greasy classic will test the average sportclimbers skills, and who can climb cracks on limestone anyway

FA: Gebrüder Seifert, 1929

FFA: A. Engelhardt, 1983

different possibilities for the start, we recommend to start from the chimney/crack on the right to reach the high 1st bolt easily from the ledge

some quite funky climbing, and some amazing bridging high up!

the first bolt is quite high but its not hard to get to.
