Check out this beautiful film about climbing on the runout sandstone routes in Saxony, Germany. Climbs in this area are protected only with knotted slings or long ring-bolts that have been placed on lead. Chalk, nuts and cams are not allowed, and since many of the routes climb free-standing pillars, top roping is not a viable option. This is perhaps one of the boldest climbing areas in the world.
