Climbing Tour Rosenlauistock

The magnificent Engelhörner provide some superb climbing tours. This multi-pitch climb takes you up the west ridge to the Rosenlauistock (max grade: 4b). After the beautiful approach, around 11 interesting pitches of climbing awaits. Once at the summit, you can enjoy your success and the fantastic view. The descent involves some down climbing, sketchy paths and an abseil before you are 'out of the woods', but your guide will continue to take good care of you!

Day 1: Over the west edge to the Rosenlauistock 4b

Via the west edge to the Rosenlauistock (max 4b). From the Rosenlaui Gorge car park a roughly 1.5 hour hike leads to the foot of the Rosenlauistock west ridge. Now we are warmed up, we don climbing harnesses and start climbing, rope length by rope length over the magnificent limestone rock, all the while enjoying the view of the wild Rosenlauital. After around 11 pitches we can stand up straight and tall on the summit and enjoy the views. The summit is only halfway! The descent via rock steps, exposed paths and one abseil is not to be underestimated.

There is another route called Haslizwerg for more ambitious climbers, which has dificulties up to grade 6.
