Summary

Demolished bunker remains in the middle of the woods with "quasi-natural" and chipped routes.

Description

"Dickes B - Kletterführer Berlin-Brandenburg", 2. Auflage 2013, Gerald Krug, Geoquest Verlag Halle, ISBN 978-3-00-016977-9

The demolition of the bunker created a turmoil of impressive toppled concrete pieces, partially with "quasi-natural" breaking faces, cracks, roofs and slabs.

Warning!

This is not a sport gym! There are imminent dangers from:

  • loose concrete parts, on the ground and the walls
  • metal rods sticking out of the concrete
  • old, poorly placed or non-conforming bolts
  • some route may require extra gear Back up you pro, don't get hurt. If you do, don't blame anyone.

Keep low-profile!

Currently, the climbing seems to be tolerated. Let's keep it this way:

  • Approach by foot or bike; or leave your car as indicated below. Driving through the forest can be heavily fined!
  • Don't leave any rubbish and take out those of other.
  • Be nice to other visitors and bunker enthusiasts.
  • If any, bury your feces at sufficient distance.
  • No fire, no loud music
  • No bolting and chipping without prior inquiry

History

History timeline chart

The bunker "Koralle" served as naval headquarters in WW-II. It stood more than 10 m above ground. After the victory, the Red Army blew up the bunker. The area remained restricted for several decades and was used a a military training range. When access became possible in the 1990ies, development of bouldering and climbing routes was driven mainly by Berlin climbers.
