A total of about 17 routes can be found on the walls of the so-called Brantl at Wiesloch. For the Ketterer in the lower grades, the two classic routes "Iltis" (southwest edge) and the "Südostwandl" should be mentioned here. The best information on all the other routes can be found in the Steinplatte climbing guide (www.panico.de) by Adi Stocker.
Coming from St. Johann i.T. or Lofer via the B178 Loferer Bundesstraße to Waidring.
Via the Steinplatte toll road to the car park below the Stallenalm. On the road in a few minutes to the Stallenalm and from there right along the forest path to the Grünwaldalm. Now follow the flat Wemeteigensteig trail to the Wieslochsteig junction. Via this to below the walls, approx. 1 hour in total.
Ascent with the gondolas of the Waidring cable cars. These offer the most comfortable access to the walls at Wiesloch. From the mountain station on the marked Wieslochsteig, finally quite steeply downhill; in approx. 1/2 hour to the entrances.

Flat, low-structure wall with many difficult routes. Classics on the wall are the "Kitzbühler Platte" (8+), the "Südwestkante Iltis" (5+), the Hypothenuse (7-), and the Bavaria Blue (8+). The most difficult route rates the "Woher Kompass" (10-). Most of the routes, except the latter, are very well secured with bolts.
Sanft sanierter Klassiker mit möglicher (schwieriger!) Variante.
Von der Stallenalm über die Grünwaldalm auf dem Wemeteigensteig und Wieslochsteig.
Vom Gipfel über latschige Passagen zum Wieslochsteig und zurück zum Einstieg. Auch abseilen über die Route möglich (50m Doppelseil!)
Challenging multi-pitch route in the best rock with excellent protection. Especially lovers of technically difficult climbing will find a rewarding destination here. The ambience and the view into the Loferer Steinberge are unique. The first 9+ awaits with demanding technical slab sections. At the key length, you have to grab hold of it at first, with a difficult single pitch at the end of the difficulties.

From Waidring, take the toll road (10€/vehicle) to the free Steinplatte car park and park there. Now walk first to the Stallenalm and then to the Grünwaldalm. After the alpine pasture, follow the Wemeteigensteig in an easterly direction and cross clearly below the foot of the wall to below the Wiesloch (notch between Brantl and Piz Erika). You can clearly see the slab armour of the south-west face of the Brantl. There you ascend the Wieslochsteig in a northerly direction to the base of the wall and traverse to the left to the entrance. The route is rather in the left part of the massif.
In Waidring, park at the car park of the mountain railways and take the lift to the top station. There follow the forest road in a south-easterly direction and walk along the Wieslochsteig to the Wiesloch. There you descend on the south side and cross below the wall to the entrance. The route is rather in the left part of the massif.
To the Waidringer Steinplatte car park:
From the summit, first head north, then east and follow the partially secured path to the Wiesloch (approx. 20 minutes). There, descend southwards and return to the car park via the access path.
To the mountain station:
From the summit, first head north, then east and follow the partially secured path to Wiesloch (approx. 20 minutes). From there, take the access path to the mountain station.
