Zoning concept

  • Zone 1: NO climbing
  • Zone 2: climbing on existing routes
  • Zone 3: new routes possible

Please respect signs and zoning.


Drive from Rupprechtstegen towards Velden. Shortly after exiting Lungsdorf, just after passing beneath the railroad bridge, turn right over a bridge to a parking area.

Walk east for 150 meters and you'll arrive directly below the wall.
