About L. Adlitzgräben:

Small valley with multiple limestone areas, most of them nearby the valley street. Areas ranging from small crags to 110 meter high walls, most climbing is steep. You'll encounter fragile sections where the rock is white, black and brown, grey surfaces are mostly solid and feature dents, grooves from water, well articulated cracks, some walls have good pockets. Be careful with huge loose grey flakes on the higher walls! Most climbs have been equipped for sport climbing where you need a 60m rope, 16 quickdraws, two locking biners, a sling or daisy chain and your belay device. Wearing a climbing helmet is recommended, especially on multi-pitch routes. Breitenstein lies in the middle of the valley and offers lovely trails for mountain biking and hiking, don't miss the “Doppelreiterwarte”, the railway trail, the “Gaiskirchl” and try to find Liechtenstein's artificial waterfall! The nearby “Höllental” offers more traditional style climbing and the “Schwarza” river which is a great gift on hot summer days. Reichenau has tourist information, a good confectioner (“Nöbauer”), various restaurants and offers the performance of popular Austrian plays from the “golden” (pre-WW2) age during summer. In Gloggnitz you can shop for climbing equipment “Sport Gruber”, visit the castle and find some supermarkets which have all the goods not available in Breitenstein. Gloggnitz also has an internet cafe and a good confectioner named "Langeder".
Nearest town or city: Gloggnitz
Directions: The closest international airport is Vienna (1 hour by train or car). From Vienna it's convenient to go by train from “Südbahnhof” to “Breitenstein”, the ticket will cost you approximately €20 for one direction. From the Breitenstein railway station the nearest crags/walls are only a 20 minutes walk away. If you have a car take the “A2” (“Südautobahn”) expressway from Vienna or Graz, next the “S6” (“Semmering Schnellstraße”) highway and depart it at “Gloggnitz” and drive via “Weissenbach” and “Aue” to “Schottwien” where you take the first arm right and follow the valley until you reach “Breitenstein”. Cars can be rented directly at the airport or via online reservation (Hertz, Avis, ...) Kaiserbrunn in the nearby “Höllental” has a free camping directly by the street/river, but this is only advisable if you have a car as it's half an hour drive away. Check the website and mail/call them for lodging offerings as well as food/restaurants directly in Breitenstein. Bring enough cash, there is no ATM at Breitenstein, credit cards are usally not accepted outside major towns in Austria.
