The new edition of the Black Pillars climbing guide for the climbing areas of the Volcanic Eifel is here!
In it, author Alex Schmalz-Friedberger presents the three climbing areas Mayen, Ettringen and Kottenheim in Rhineland-Palatinate in detail.

In addition to well-secured beginner routes, the three climbing areas in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate also offer excellent opportunities for crack climbing in all grades and technical edge climbing in the high-end range. A total of over 1700 routes in all grades, with very few exceptions an excellent rock quality, route lengths up to just over 30 meters, perfect equipment with bolts as well as natural crack and intersection climbs to belay yourself - all this offers the best climbing area in the Eifel.
