Climbing Guide

After the reedition of the guidebook, you can buy it on the climbing.lu or in the tourist information in Berdorf for 18 euros.
The best way to get that crag is to leave the car on the parking just outside Berdorf, it's easy to find it, another possibility is to take B2 path ( it's a loop around Berdorf ) and it's about 2 km up to the crag.
Despite of that there are a lot of rocks, only one area named Wanterbaach is permitted to climb, the routes are 5 up to 36 meters high, and are well equiped. The rocks are made of sandstone, so you should take a toothbrush and clean up the magnesium after you finish. Bear in mind that this is protected area so you should behave like in national park.
