  • Dietmar Rabenstein, Austrian climber and Vienna palatinum.info outpost in the past years, had to tackle an unusual problem last weekend:
    On his way to Paulmauer, the snow was so high that it covered the track marks and Dietmar could hardly find his way (see the red line in the left picture).

Non-Exploding in "TNT"

  • New year - new clip!
    palatinum.info crew Alex Wenner and Kai Richelsen edited this clip of Alex climbing Pfalz top route "TNT" 8b+ at Retschelfels.
    Bolted some years ago by Florian Eigner, the run on "TNT" began when Florain gave up after years of unsuccessful attempts. Steffen Frey was the first to make it.

palatinum.info's Reaction to the "No Footsteps" Campaign

No Poop Marks!

  • Environment protection isn't a sole issue of the Pfalz area. The Alps, too, have been under discussion for years.
    Where witless chalkers leave their white marks on the pristine Pfalz sandstone, many alpine access tracks are surrounded by in the stinky, brown leftovers of unscrupulous climbers in need for a last dump.
    palatinum.info takes the initiative and kicks off "No Poopsteps" - we show you the correct way to enjoy your shit ;-).
    Many thanks to H. Gero Schilling for his great snapshot!
