Pfalz is a fantastically beautiful region at the very west of Germany, close to the French border. The landscape is that of rolling hills with beautiful forests, which offers climbing, cycling and hiking for a lifetime.
The type of rock is hard sandstone, which - as opposed to the other well-known German sandstone area Elbsandstein - allows for usage of metal protection (nuts, cams, etc.). The climbs there are mostly single pitch climbs on beautiful sandstone towers that stick out of the forest, spread over a rather large area.
The type of climbing is usually trad, with the occasional ring anchor at the crux or on otherwise unprotectable sections.
