Yes! But You'll need only a few in this steep route.
Nice foto but wrong location. It's the "Übergangsweg" from "Kleiner Falknerturm" (left) to "Großer Falknerturm".
The route isn't the easiest 5.11a that's true. But what You don't see: the rock has perfect friction. First ascent was 1987.
@gymslackerclimber: Good idea! Do You have any suggestions for a "motivational comment"?
It's not easy to describe the grades in words. I will try it: A jump of grade 1 is an easy hop of about 2.0 - 2.5m with good areas for jump and landing. Grade 2 is a bit broader about 2.5 - 3.0m with still good jump and landing. Grade 3 is either broader or has difficult areas for jump and/or landing. Grade 4 is a broad jump of about 4m or more (eventually combinated with a big vertical difference) mostly with very difficult areas for jump and landing (e.g. no place for startup steps, landing at very small and inclined ledges, jump to holds in an upright face).
Grade 1 You will do without any protection. Grade 4 is only for specialists with a high potential to get injured.
Body leaning spans haven't an own scale in the Elbsandsteingebirge. The locals differ only if you can do the span at your own, or if you need somebody to support you.
Should be deleted. It's a really amazing shot but it's a stolen Foto from Heinz Zack. Look here for the original: http://www.heinzzak.com/
One of the harder jumps You can see here: http://www.family-weboffice.de/felsenwelt/Verlag/Verlagsangebot/Kalender/2008/2008.html
@Nate: You're wrong! It was real! Really a lucky moment.
Things done in photoshop where only a simple auto levels and a size reduction. Thats all. No compilation, no cropping, no tricks.
Do You want a portrait of the capricorn too?
All You photoshoppers: Don't forget to use Your glasses! ;-)
I've counted 18 capricorns on my ascent to the summit of the Grand Veymont. I've never seen so many at the same time at one place. The first animals of this herd where reintroduced in 2000 and 2001.
See here (in French, sorry):
Two bolts and one knot sling to put into the crack at his left foot.
That's silly european anti-trad!
Talweg am Schwager.
I agree. But as You can see here, there are other crags in germany which offers clean crack climbing from the beginning of the last century: http://www.rockclimbing.com/photos/Trad/Nordriss_123095.html
The usage of cams and nuts is prohibited in this area.
No it's basalt.
It's a small area of local interesest only. The climbing there has no long tradition. That's the reason because there are no strong trad ethics.
