A shallow slope on the eastern side of Grieswies-Schwarzkopf mountain, adjoined by steep cliffs to the west. These rocks contain numerous clefts, some of which reach very large dimensions. The Grieswies itself is composed of rocksled material, dating back to prehistoric times when a large part of the northeast slope of Hocharn mountain slipped off.
