before 1900, Oskar Schuster
Rare rings and a couple of knot slings and hourglasses.
One of the Elbsandstone classics. Be sure to rub Schuster's nose (you'll know what it means when you see it). Do _not_ underestimate the route. Despite its low rating this is serious climbing - also for the second. The route is pretty long (200ft being just the distance from bottom to top, climbing distance is over 300'), protection is rare on some pitches and the rock quality is not always the best. The beauty of the line, the exposure and the jaw-dropping view from the top make it more than worthwhile though. A must - get in line!

The length and quality, combined with the easy climbing, definitely makes this *the* must-do line of the Elbsandsteingebirge. If you know what to look for, the protection is actually moderately good (relatively speaking), and the route is for the most part obvious, except in 2 spots... I would still highly recommended everyone do the route the first time with someone who knows the way.
