Kathedrale

On last Sunday the weather forecast was perfect, so Magda, Markus, Marcel and I went to Lämmerfelsen near Dahn in the Palatinate. There are some cool classic routes like „Batman“ (7a+) or „Kathedrale“ (7c). „Batman“ is a tricky sloper rail followed by some powerful moves in black sandstone. It ist tricky to place your feet...

On last Sunday the weather forecast was perfect, so Magda, Markus, Marcel and I went to Lämmerfelsen near Dahn in the Palatinate. There are some cool classic routes like „Batman“ (7a+) or „Kathedrale“ (7c). „Batman“ is a tricky sloper rail followed by some powerful moves in black sandstone. It ist tricky to place your feet on bad holds near your hands to hold the sloper rail. I did it years ago, but it was fun to reclimb it again. Magda did a nice flash of it with a super powerful beta – looked really exhausting 🙂 .

Magda and Markus also tried the „Kathedrale“ which are not only some tricky moves, but the crux is followed by a long run out – if you fall there, you will fly about 10 metres down the wall. When I climbed it years ago, I found it pretty hard. Markus did it after a few attempts (sometimes I don’t get it – Markus is never training, but always sending super hard stuff).

I wanted to try something new and checked out the „Sandschloss“ (7b+). The guidebook described it as a tricky route and normally I like it if you have to use your brain and your skills instead of pure power. But the tricky part was around a corner about 3 metres above the last bolt and I was really scared. So I struggled to do tricky moves into a slab with sloppy holds. I needed some time until I just did the moves, climbed into the holdless slab – and happily survived 🙂 .  In the end, it was not super hard to climb, but if you don’t know how to do it, you are scared as hell. „Sandschloss“ is maybe not the best route I ever climbed, but „Kathedrale“ and „Batman“ are some super cool routes that are worth to be climbed.
