Lotta-Wand

UIAA

Summary

Trad Climbing Area with steep granit rock cliffs up to 25m. Spectacular overhangig roof at the top. Good alternative to overcrowded Burenkogel. Toprope possible.

Description

The "Lotta Wand" (Lotta Wall) is a granit wall typical for the area. Tradclimbing and Drytooling only. Very spectacular wall.

Access issues

by car : its about 25min from linz. go to rottenegg and drive the street upstream the Große Rodel Tal till you reach the parking of the burenkogel (see there) by bike : you can take your bike with you in the train to rottenegg for 2 euro hiking : go to rottenegg by train and follow the hiking path upstream till you reach the marked stone (see below) from the other side.

Approach

by car : just drive to the parking lot of the burenkogel and park there. then cross the river over the bridge and turn right (by the house). Follow the hiking trail downstream for about 15-20min until you see a stone with red-white-red marks on it. The Lotta Wand is now left of you up in the forest. So climb a small path (if its still there) steep upwards until you see the cliff.

Where to stay

youthhostel in linz or camping in the area.

Ethic

For ethic reasons and legal concerns the wall was not bolted. All routes are easy to belay with mobile traditional tools. Even no pegs are needed. On the top you will find several trees with rings and slings, so toproping and headpointing is easy. It is maybe the best tradclimbing spot in the mühlviertel. Also drytooling possible.

History

History timeline chart

Also as big as the famous Burenkogel it was first found and cleaned in 2008, as it seems a bit hidden in the forest. All existing routes were defined and climbed by "fleisch" (Robert Wacha) and friends becomming their favorit tradclimbing playground.

Hört, seht und staunt - alles in allem warten hier 120 Pause-Touren! DAS ultimative Werk für Extremkletterer und für alle die von den ganz großen Kletterrouten der Alpen träumen (wollen).

Im extremen Fels - Die "legendären" Alpinklettertouren in den Alpen

Author(s): Adi Stocker

Date: 2014

ISBN: 978-3-95611-022-1

Auf den 44 000 für dieses Buch recherchierten Klettermetern mischen sich epochale alpine Meilensteine unter genussreiche neue Routenkreationen. Kletternde Legenden wie Albert Precht, Klaus Hoi oder Heinz Zak kommentieren ihre Leidenschaft für den steilen Fels. Routen von Klettergrößen aus lang vergangener Zeit, wie Angelo Dibona oder Hias Rebitsch, sind den modernen Anforderungen entsprechend genauestens aufgezeichnet. Und auch den neuen, mit Bohrhaken abgesicherten Routen von Kreativtalenten wie Ralf Sussmann, Rudi Kühberger oder dem Autor selber, ist viel Platz gewidmet. 40 lange Routen mit mindestens 20 Seillängen, in denen man dem Zeitgeist entsprechend Bohrhaken klinken kann, aber manchmal auch mit maroden Rostgurken Vorlieb nehmen muss.
