Please keep the crags noise free and clean. Take your trash and toilet papers with you. Locals tend to bring dogs to the crag. It is good manners to use your own gear at the anchors for lowering or setting up top-ropes. Use the anchor rings/carabiners only for the final lower-off after cleaning.

Looks more solid and tempting than it is. Also the top out is on some birdshit covered holds. Bring a complete cam set and nuts. We used from BD 0.3 til 2. Some are needed twice.

Very nice finger crack, with cool moves. It's way better to belay from the plateau! There is a rock flake and a small tree for a good belay station. Otherwise you get a lot of rope drag and you have to do the key moves just above the plateau. You might need some smaller cams till 0.75 and some stoppers. Bring a double rack.

Could have some lechen on it, due to less traffic. The crack itself is fun to climb. The only downside is the small plateau after the start. You might need BD 0.3 - 0.75. Best a double rack.

Most climbed, most fun trad route here. At the start use especially micro cams. Stoppers are also possible, but have to be placed a little higher up. In the crack you can place up til BD 2. One Bolt at the starting slab.
