Did anybody reach the top by free climbing. The roof is formidable, but perhaps it is absent on the other side, he, he?
Cheers, Andrej

Yes - it is like Utah with vegetation. The whole huge region is like that with its 300+ climbing cliffs. However, most of them are safely hidden in the forest and very hard to photograph.

As for climbing Teufelstisch - yes it can be done. It actually has been first climbed in 1923 by its normal route (6+). The whole strucureis overhanging but you are right, the weak spot is on thr remote side, where the overhang is much smaller than on all other sides.

Currently I am reorganizing the area page since I finally managed to get the locations of 99% of the cliffs.

Thanks Fabrizio! There is a local tale in which the devil needed a table for his dinner and quickly took two large rocks and put them together like this.

Die Südpfalz mit ihren Sandsteinformationen ist eine wundervolle Gegend. Überall lugt ein Felsen hinter Bäumen hervor. Der Teufelstisch ist unbestritten das Wahrzeichen.

Das ganze sieht etwas brüchig aus..! Sandstein ist ja im Vergleich zu Kalk oder sogar Granit recht brüchig. Wie verhält sich das in der Südpfalz?

So und so. Teilweise (im Norden vor allem) ist's mehr Sand als Stein (Kieseinschlüsse und so), teilweise sind es superstabile Felsen. Wie in der Sächsischen Schweiz gibt es aber Verhaltensregeln beim Klettern, um den Fels zu schützen. Bohren, Hacken und sonstige "Verbesserungen" sind verpönt. Trotzdem haben viele Felsen, wie der Rödelstein Hunderte von Ringen. Wahrscheinlich wurde jeder einzige in den Sizungen der PK diskutiert und genehmigt ;-) Ist halt 'ne Sportklettecke.
