Tannholzwand is a wonderful wall, one of the main attractions of Schlüchttal, with routes that go up to 60m in length. In particular the upper wall is superb, although to get there often involves a couple of slightly dirty pitches. These are not bad, can remain wet after prolonged rain, and in many ways add to the alpine nature of the place. There are now so many bolted routes on the walls that route finding can be difficult, not knowing which line of bolts to follow and where the variations go. The plus side to this is that the upper pitches at least are well protected. Nuts and friends are occasionally needed on some routes, particularly those in the lower grades. As with the rest of Schlüchttal, on sunny summer weekends, the road can get noisy from the motorbikes enjoying the bends in the valley.
