Klettern "Ettringer Lay" und "Kottenheimer Winfeld"
Climbing in the former quarry
Override the laws of gravity. Smooth slabs, overhangs and fireplaces become a fascinating experience and guarantee an adventure that will be remembered for a long time to come.
Climbing means dancing in the vertical and is one of the most beautiful forms to feel his body completely and to control its exact functioning.
Basalt lava was mined here until a few decades ago. However, the former quarry areas were already discovered a few years ago by recreational climbers and attract meanwhile more and more supporters of this sport.
On the website of Alexander S. Friedberger (www.klettern-ettringen.de) the climbing areas and tours are presented and also other information about climbing in the two o.g. Main climbing areas in the front Eifel ready.
In addition, the German Alpine Club, Section Koblenz, offers the opportunity to learn how to climb and live together under supervision and in the group in Ettringen and Kottenheim.
