Plenty has been happening in recent years in this classic area on the North-West face of the Laber.
New routes have been developed, and good progress has been made with renovating the existing paths. The short ascent and high number of routes of medium difficulty mean that this is an area which is growing in popularity.

Difficulty: 6- to 9

Nature protection: the area is located on the edge of the Ammer Mountains Nature Conservation Area. Please behave accordingly.

Information on current conditions on the rock is available at 
This section merely contains information on accessing the climbing area.

From the car park, continue straight ahead on a hiking trail, go round two short bends and ascend a weakly defined gully. The hiking trail leads on to the right towards Ettal. Shortly afterwards, follow a clear uphill path (cairns are sometimes there as trail markers). After about 10 minutes, leave the steep path by following it round to the left and then turning right (foot marks). After a further 10 minutes, you will arrive at the lower edge of the rock. From here, a further two minutes will bring the upper part into view .
Nach der Kletterei empfiehlt sich ein Beusch des Biergarten an der Ettaler Mühle.
Im Notfall verständigen Sie bitte die nächstgelegene Rettungsleitstelle. Unabhängig vom Standort erreichen Sie diese deutschlandweit unter der Telefonnummer 112.
