Dritte Zinne




Coming from the Fuchsfels, the second cliff of the "Zinnen" (merlons). Features 2-pitch routes, mainly face climbing.

Access issues inherited from Hausener Felsen



Follow the trail from the car park. At the junction with a hiking trail ascending from the valley don't follow the signs to the Verlobungsfels. Keep straight on until the next junction below the Fuchsfels. Turn right and ascent until you reach the trail that connects all cliffs. Turn left and pass the Fuchfels sectors Klemmfix and Metaxa and the 'Westliche Zinne'.

Descent notes

Abseiling is possible but scrambling/walking is faster. Enter the top of the cliff and keep right.

Ethic inherited from Donautal

Leave no trace

  • No camp fire and bivvy.
  • Don't leave toilet paper.
  • Pick up rubbish.
  • No unnecessary noise.
  • Don't toprope directly through bolts – use your own material.

The direct entry to 'Eichkatzelkamin'. Avoids the long traverse but is more difficult. The chimney is very polished but there are very good rest positions. Protection is sufficient.

Climb in via 'Eichkatzel Direkteinstieg'. It's a very good alternative over the regular finish of the 'Eichkatzelkamin'.

The route starts right from the 'Eichkatzel Direkteinstieg' and the first pitch ends at the same belay. After the belay go straight up and then follow the bolts to the right through the slab. After the 4th bolt head left. The next bolt is far away but the section is not too hard. Then go up and follow the bolts until the top of the face.

It is possible to rap off twice with a single rope, once with two half ropes or walk off. To walk off don't use the belay in the face. Climb in the top. There is another bolt you can use to belay and sit comfortably while waiting for the second.

Für Däle-Verhältnisse überaus gut abgesicherte Route entlang eines Riss. Zum Schluß kommt noch ne relativ fiese Platte. Der Umlenker ist nicht geschenkt

Starts at the first belay of Discopapa. The very nice dihedral and crack of the first pitch is already visible from the bottom of the cliff. A classic route at this cliff.

An alternative to the last pitch of 'Piazwandl'. Turns left at the second pitch after the belay. One short crux.

Most easy route of the cliff and a classic. Start below the route 'Kamin' and traverse to the left until you reach the chimney of 'Eichkatzelkamin'. To save time it is possible to pass the first belay where the route crosses 'Discopapa' and 'Piazwandl'.

FA: Blickle, 1930

The chimney between 'Dritte Zinne' and 'Westliche Zinne'. Always cool and may be wet after rain.

Compared to other climbs in the valley the protection is good.

Toproping the route isn't recommended. The single belay anchor is around and almost below an edge. Let the second follow or force him/she to lead
