This is always a good trip - check out the Trip Log.
Pfalz is about 5hours drive away, you can see more info here. We'll probably leave on Friday stay somewhere on the way to get most out of climbing on Saturday.
Pfalz is a fantastically beautiful region at the very west of Germany, close to the French border. The landscape is that of rolling hills with beautiful forests, which offers climbing, cycling and hiking for a lifetime.
The type of rock is hard sandstone, which - as opposed to the other well-known German sandstone area Elbsandstein - allows for usage of metal protection (nuts, cams, etc.). The climbs there are mostly single pitch climbs on beautiful sandstone towers that stick out of the forest, spread over a rather large area.
The type of climbing is usually trad, with the occasional ring anchor at the crux or on otherwise unprotectable sections.
This is a Trad(itional) climbing area, so no bolts but removable protection :-)
If you've never climbed Trad, you should - adds an extra dimension to the climbing. I hasten to add it's perfectly safe for those seconding.
There will be limited places on this trip (limited by the number of Trad Leaders) so if you're keen RSVP.
