  • Basic experience of climbing, belaying and abseiling is absolutely necessary!
  • Physical fitness, a head for heights and sure-footedness are essential.

Anyone tackling a climbing crag definitely needs the requisite equipment.

When tackling a via ferrata route, wearing complete and fully-functional equipment is compulsory!
In addition, practice how to use the equipment safely and properly to avoid the risk of falling!

Another highlight.

A public barbecue area right in the climbing crag ensures that you can stay at the climbing crag for hours, since while some are honing their technique, the others can be preparing a hearty BBQ.

Our tip.
Right in Warth, just 5 minutes from the climbing crag, is a butcher's shop "Wälder Metzge", where you will find dreamy speciality meats for your BBQ!
