The Knorren Nadel © Mike-W-99

Crag features

A compact but fun crag. Catches the sun from early in the morning. Has a via ferrata along the top. Collect free leaflet with topos for Knorren and Gschosswand at Penken top station.

Good topo here.

Approach notes

Take the Penken Bahn gondola out of Mayrhofen and then the Sesselbahn Penken chairlift. The kletterngarten is signed from here and easily visible from the path.

The lines in the Klettern/Bouldern guidebook are off for this crag, and the grades are a bit wonky too. By comparing the book with the the bolts and the topos that are on info boards at the crag, you can work out what's where just about.

Look for the crag over to the left as you head to the start of the Klettersteig, or alternatively from the track follow the sign for Panoramaweg zur See then it Weill be over to your right near the end of the Klettersteig.

I'd personally recommend a helmet as a lot of loose rock gets kicked down off of the via ferrata above.
