Annweiler, Germany

A natural rock formation of sandstone in the Palatinate Forest.
The roughly 60 meter tall and over 10 meter wide rock tower is 58 meters high at its highest point
and consists of rocks from the Lower Red Sandstone. The Asselstein was first climbed in June 1860.
With almost 80 routes, e. g. Normalweg IV-, Westwand V-, Rolfkamin V+ and Ostwand V (UIAA climbing
grades) it is one of the major climbing destinations in the South Palatinate Climbing Area.
The most difficult route is UIAA grade 9+

other sizes: small medium large original
