Access: coming from Oberammgau, go past the Kolbenalmlift, and parking is available on the right-hand side approximately 100 metres further on. There is a further car park below the Calvary statue.
Turn left onto the flat hiking trail (Grottenweg) heading towards the Kofel and follow this path for about 10 minutes until it descends sharply for the first time.
Now turn off right into the woods and follow the "Maxersteig" uphill. The trail will become increasingly apparent. After a further 15 minutes, you will reach the first routes located directly next to the uphill path (Max and Moritz).
You will now see the routes of the Bergwacht climbing crag at regular intervals (every 5 to 10 minutes ). You will need to turn off the path to the left. Continuing to follow the path, you will soon arrive at a gorge. The routes Edge and Bätsch are located at its entrance on the right-hand side.
