Located near the town of Inzigkofen in the Upper Danube valley (Donautal in German), Dreiecksfels is easy to reach and conveniently located right next to Aussichtsfels. It offers a number of easy multipitch routes making it a good option for those not looking for the usual Donautal hard stuff to crush. It’s easy to do a few routes and then switch to the neighboring crag depending on what you want to climb and whether many other groups are in the area.

Dreieicksfels: Getting there & Approach
From Stuttgart, head towards either Hausen im Tal or Signmaringen. Doesn’t make a huge difference which variation you choose in terms of driving time and distance.
From Sigmaringen, head towards Inzigkofen on the 313 and about 700 meters or so after the seemingly non-functional Bahnhof, there’s a large designated parking area on the right hand side (with signs alerting you to it about 200m in advance). Pull off there and park. The large crag right by the road is Aussichtsfels. Looking towards the woods (not the river), Dreiecksfels is the one on your right.
Coming from Hausen im Tal, it’s a ~10-15minute drive eastwards. The parking is easy to miss but if you do, you’ll see the old Inzkofen train station on your right where you can turn around and head right back. Note that even though you’ll see a little unpaved road between the official parking and the Inzigkofen Bahnhof, ignore it. The parking area is well signed and big. No way to mistake it.
Dreieicksfels Crag Details
Dreiecksfels (Triangle Crag) is another limestone crag in the Danube Valley sitting right near the river. It has several of two pitch climbs, in both easy and moderate grades making it a good general choice and great backup if more popular crags like Stuhlfels are busy.
It’s located next to a nice parking/pull off area making it hard to miss and easy to approach.
- Neue Westwand (7+, 4+) – Hard first pitch and easy second. Fun route but requires cams and nuts
- Dreiecksriss (4-, 5-) – Probably the most fun and climbed. This long crack climb starts at the end of hte crag and works its away along the crack wandering left.
- Tschako Trip (6, 5) – Super fun moderate with a fun finish. Old bolts though. Better supplement with gear!
