Summary

Remote crag at the highest point of the hill between Schweinthal and Schlehenmühle.

Description

Three sectors which differ quite a bit in character. They all share a typical Frankenjura setting in a nice beechwood forest, the rock is quite unusual though.

Access issues inherited from Frankenjura Nord

Seasonal closures for protected birds. See here: Closed crags

Additional information: IG Klettern closure list

Zoning concept

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

Please respect signs and zoning.

Approach

Drive from Schweinthal in direction Schlehenmühle (also restaurant). 300 meters after Schweinthal, there is a parking site on the right side (49.7272741, 11.2511072). Choose the right path over the street which makes a curve to the right. Follow the track to the highest point. Then go left and traverse to the crag.

Ethic inherited from Frankenjura Nord

  • The limestone is soft – please clean your shoes from dirt in order to avoid polished handholds and steps.
  • Don't toprope directly through bolts – use your own material.
  • Clean chalk and tickmarks with a brush.
  • Don't leave toilet paper.
  • Pick up rubbish.
  • No unnecessary noise.
  • No camp fire and bivvy.
  • Park considerately (tractor should be able to pass also at the weekend).
  • Smoking in the forests is forbidden from March 1 until October 31 by law.
  • No publishing of boulder blocks.
