6- Bieringerverschneidung

Did this ascent in full darkness with head lamp on. The crux is on the first bolt. Sat there to figure out the holds and footholds in the dark and slided off with my feet one time almost over the crux.

6- Bieringerverschneidung

Really tricky dihedral climbing, rewarding but challenging. Nuts and cams helpful, the bolts are quite spaced. Nowadays, the second pitch is unclimbable, it's just a pile of dirt and vegetation (and the interesting part is probably over, anyway).

7 Sackwand

From the belay of "Bieringerverschneidung", traverse right and up to the overhanging dihedral. The traverse is a bit bold, less bolts than there were pegs in the old days. Crux at the beginning of the overhanging dihedral, then beautiful jugs to the top. Had quite the epic in the end, but luckily we didn't get benighted on the route. #lastrouteoftheday

Can't really claim the onsight here, I knew that there was a dyno involved. And quite the huge dyno for the grade! Built up momentum as much as I could and barely reached the target jug.

6+ Trebberla

Nice wall climbing. Some hollow structures, but should be fine for another while. Crux at the third bolt. Short people need to take a detour to the left (and should therefore maybe extend the third bolt), but even for me it still felt hard for the grade. The last bulge is also a bit morpho if you don't want to do a bump to the good holds (which aren't visible from below).

9- Gargamel

Great line along the narrow south east face; mostly pockets with some nasty moves. One pocket after the second bolt was worse than I had expected so I jumped out to the arête. My feet cut loose, my woollen hat fell off, but luckily, I had exactly hit the hold on the arête, so I quickly rearranged my feet and continued to the next jug. Unfortunately, it's again not obvious how to continue from there, so my right arm slowly got pumped and I just had to use everything I had to cling to the arête. Used up the last bit of strength to throw my hand up into the fist jam in the crack. Super happy about the onsight.

Nasty start that was done by stepping onto the belayer's shoulders in the old days. Climbed freely, it's a tough boulder on small pockets and crimps to the big old ring. The crack above is quite nice, but still not trivial.

8- Direkte Talseite

Tried to go directly through the crux and failed. Took the left detour after all. The bolts are sparse, so it was nice having the (long) quickdraws put in there by Christoph Rauch. This was the last route of the day, otherwise I might have tried it once more.

Fantastic, sunny arête in perfect rock. Hooks left and right, technical moves on sidepulls and an airy, overhanging finish on pockets along the arête a bit to the left.

5 Westkante

Quite open pockets for the grade, felt at least like 5+ or even 6- if you go directly over the bolts. You can always stick to the arête on the right, though, which makes it easier. But a nice climb and a good #warmup. Loose blocks in the beginning, though. A small nut before the first bolt is advised.

8- Direkte Talseite

Long, good climbing, less chossy than it looks, but still fragile. Spaced bolting that keeps you on edge, but not really dangerous. The crux at the bulge is ridiculously hard and probably has nothing to do with 8- if you don't go a bit left, which is then actually the line of "Kurva Němec" … makes the latter a bit useless. Fantastic easy finish over the little pillar.

7 Talseite

A great climb and a remarkable achievement for 1912. Legend has it that this was one of the first routes in Franken in which pitons were used as aid, which is understandable given that the bulge at the second bolt is pretty tricky and hard when climbed freely. Marvellous rock and a nice crack finish.

7+ Optimist

Long pocket climb with few good rest positions in the upper part, quite sustained; important to use the rest point below the final overhang! Almost dropped off just before the anchor. The start, unfortunately, is a bit crumbly, also the part around the old ring, so the first half feels a bit more like alpine climbing.

8+ Bella Addizione

Incredibly long route with quite a few difficult passages, but with some good rest points. The hardest section is getting from the dihedral out onto the arête in the lower part without barndooring. The finish is marvellous: exposed climbing through the final overhang, just keep it together and climb, don't stop. The moves aren't too hard, the holds big enough. The longer your quickdraws are, the better.

7 Kunstflug

I thought I'd find the right line through the overhang this time, but seems like I only got it 80 percent right … it's so confusing when there are bolts everywhere and it's all climbable in some way. At least I found the right way to the belay of Jean Couzy via the flake and then also to the sling. No matter what you climb up there, it's awesome. The crux is down low anyway, high above the bolt. #warmup … sort of.

The start from the block onto the wall may depend on the climbers height. Smaller climbers may need to use the small vertikal crack line up to the horizontal crack, instead of the big hole on the right, which otherwise can be reached from the block. The crack on top was strenuous and several times I though my arm or foot will just slip out of it but it didn't.

If the legs of the climber are too short, there is a need of a daring drop hands first from one brother to the other to get into the chimney. ("Hände hoch, das ist ein Überfall." -belayer). Getting into the chimney was the hardest part. Would say it's definitely again some classic 3+ ;-) chimney climbing. Smaller climbers have more fun in this one .

On the first try, I couldn't find the hold to make the reachy move into that was promised in the guidebook. I found a solution that goes really straight up, but it's hard for the grade. Ellen found a good hold further to the right (but totally within the line, imho), which made it much easier.
