Battert climbing – The Jewel and Trad Mecca of southern Germany

Battert! I’ve wanted to climb here since first seeing the pictures in my Black Forest guidebook. It’s the most unique crag in southern Germany and the trad mecca of the region. It’d been rainy for several days before and I was convinced we’d have to call it off. It was even gray and rainy here in Stuttgart the morning of, but by the time we were near the crag, the sky was blue and sunny. Granted, the rain started in around 13:30 but by then we’d managed to get several climbs in and just being there and doing Blockgrat was already a great day for me.

Quick Facts:

  • Height: 80 meters
  • Routes: ~350
  • Grades: UIAA 3 to 8
  • Rock: Quartz-Porphyry
  • Distance from Stuttgart: 1.5hrs by car
  • Approach: 15 minutes, very well maintained, flat path.
  • Protection: Almost all trad, a bolt or two here and there. Belays often bolted.
  • Walk off:  Yes and No.
  • Guidebook: Kletterführer Schwarzwald Nord
  • Family friendly: Sort of. The approach is easy, short and flat, even stroller friendly. The base of the climbs vary. Definitely doable and no steep drop offs or so.
