Caro's favourite routes in Franken?
Eraserhead, being her first route on the journey following the steps of the “old gang” (now her 50RP route as well!)
Amazonenpfeiler - FA by the legend Wolfgang Güllich himself, a first for Caro in this category.
Nürnberger Weg - she got a belay there by none other than Milan Sykora.
Break free (Freistein) and Step into promised land (Schlehenstein).
Weiße Hände, a route she had to work hard on and that has led to one of Caro's most cherished Franken encounters...
It was May 2019 when Caro and Robert strayed to Albrecht Dürer Fels for the first time. It was already afternoon upon their arrival in Franken and this crag was simply close enough for a quick session before it gets dark. That’s how Caro found her new project: Weiße Hände. She didn't get stuck into the route properly until a year later, though. That's when she figured out the moves and also took a peek into the logbook hanging on that wall. As it turned out, the logged ascents dated about 20 years back! In the more recent logs, she found a note from a girl who, similarly to herself, needed to put some work into the route (the note said something along the lines of: “finally managed, cool route”). Caro remembered the name from under the note. She tried another route on the same wall, Enenen, which she found very hard for the grade. A few months later, Caro found Katha on Instagram and decided to contact her. She wanted to know if Katha had tried Enenen as well and how she found it. That's how a friendship started growing roots, nowadays blooming when Caro visits Franken and gets to meet her logbook friend. No wonder Weiße Hände has become quite dear to her.
