Overview

The Wolkensteiner Wand is a classical, 45 meters high rock in the Wiesenttal, the North East Region of the Frankenjura.
Its very attractive because the climbing wall is dry, even on rainy days.
Altogether, the Wolkensteiner Wand offers about 23 routes up to 3 pitches in the grades between 5.5 up to 5.13a.
The secure points and return hooks are very well.
Six of the described routes are already in the second Bühlerführer
described from the year 1964.
In the winter 2005 Burkhard Müller, Norbert Schauer and Ernst Hermann
reorganized big parts of the wall.
In particular the right wall part was guessed/advised in oblivion and
its now again a worthwhile goal.
Attention falling rocks: Since the rock is firm not without exception
and is climbed at the entire wall in several floors, it prevails falling rocks danger at the lower part wound.
The rock structure offers holes, borders, cracks and slopes
The routes are perpendicularly , easily overhanging and also strongly
overhanging
