Description

Lone old railway bridge in a small forest, covered with grafitti. Not really a nice place, especially when some illegal parties took place leaving trash all around. However, quite good for some training sessions - the flat surroundings of Munich don't offer many possibilities apart from gyms. Wall climbing on small holes and crimps is dominating, but also some hard roofs are possible. Most lines can be easily equipped with a top-rope. Be warned: the concrete is slippery and the grafitti even worse, so good foot work is essential. The local grades are considered to be stiff by some. In summer, beware of mosquitos!

Approach

Small parking bay next to the street. From there 3min along the small path through the woods. For those on public transport: the bridge can easily be reached by foot from the S-Bahn station "Eichenau".

History

View historical timeline

Constructed during WW2 as a railway bridge, the corresponding railway line got abandoned shortly after the war and dismounted later. Since then the sole bridge remained untouched and is now surrounded by a small forest. In 2005, local climbers in cooperation with the alpine club put bolts to open it for climbing (which was practiced already before).
