In 1992, Mike Jäger and friends visited SA from the former East Germany. Mike opened several routes in the style of his home area - the Elbsandstein. Unfortunately he never informed us of the name and thus we have named them for him. None of the routes were popular because of the long leadouts. This changed in 1997 when we added some bolts between the original bolts. At the same time, I opened two new routes. *
