Well done, Gangolf! It's nice you kept the promise to yourself. Your work is especially valuable as you took pictures especially to create this page. And the area is nice and impressive!
Thanks Vid, in fact I like the area so much that I go there quite often. It's probably due to the fact that I used to be scared of heights as a kid and even as a teen. But still alway fascinated by them.I aways wanted to be on top but somehow couldn't get there. Not so here: you can get up by car and just have a look down...
Highly interesting page about a Rock/Castles
seen on Rick Steve's "Travels in Europe" series. Definitely a satisfying destination for climbing, panoramas and history The rock guide (first 1/2)translates into English with the help of the google bar. Great pictures of the crags.
A colleague's dachshund was named Goetz and I enquired about this strange name. He told me about Goetz von Berlichingen and the peasant's war. Thomas Muenzer was less fortunate than Goetz!
Thanks for the vote! I'm trying to contact the guy who wrote the climbing guide so maybe we can see the translated version here on SP....
When I read about F. v. Sickingen I wondered, how on earth he could own a castle here when his home, Sickingen, is some 300 miles away. In that time that was a week's travel! But I guess these nobles had their property everywhere.
In that respect not much has changed
Thanks a lot
Nice page! The absolute height of mountain does not matter, what matters is its height in your and other's hearts!
Thanks for the vote! Nicely said! Could be a quote for the thread with mountaineering quotes.
Having already posted some 60000m I thought it was time for another low one :-))
Another great effort Gangolf... congrats.
Thanks Tim! And I only posted half of the pictures :-) Hope you had a nice Easter weekend...
Nice page ...
nice work heaps of information
Thanks Noah. I'm trying to do my best :-))
Wow, Gangolf... I love these types of places. Thanks for sharing, and putting together a great page - I enjoyed your photos too. Cheers!
Thanks Rachel. Glad you liked it!
Interesting formation and a nice page.
Thanks. I love the fact that this minor "summit" already racked up 11 votes. But don't be fooled - the rock quality is between gravel and debris. You need to be determined to have fun on this crag. And need a lot of experience under these kind of conditions. They say a lose III is harder that a regular VI :-))
Nice page. Glad you have some nearby slopes so that you don't have to go so far to see a mountain.
Fantastic Site!! I think I can learn a lot from you by presenting a mountain region like this! Great !!
Thanks Andreas! I got bored enough a year ago to post this page. If you are writing about local "mountains" you have much better possibilities to find the circumstantial info ;-)
