Northern Frankenjura Part 2



Sebastian Schwertner
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

This newest release from Sebastian Schwertner covers the southern areas of the northern Frankenjura. The areas described are: Walberla, Trubachtal, Betzensteiner Gebiet, Spieser Gebiet, Schnaittacher Gebiet, Pegnitztal, Krottenseer Forst, Hirschbachtal, Königsteiner Gebiet, Lehental, Högenbachtal, Förrenbachtal and Lauterbachtal. Unfortunately, the "areas" described here do not directly correspond to those here on MP. They are more generalized, whereas those here on MP tend to go parking parking lot, and then into further detail of which crags are accessed from these parking lots.

Northern Frankenjura 1 & 2



Ulrich & Harald Röker
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

These are the only guidebooks which provide descriptions in English. Parts 1 and 2 are laid out very similarly to the corresponding "Band 1" and "Band 2" written by Sebastian Schwertner, however the topos are more 3 dimensional. These are also not as up to date as the Schwertner guidebooks.

Northern Frankenjura



Bernhard Thum
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

If you want it all in one volume, this is it. Though it was written in 2010, you've still got a lifetime's worth of routes here and don't need to fork out the €60 to get the brand new Schwertner guidebooks. The organization of this book is a little different from the rest as it doesn't need to divide the Frankenjura into two sections. Also, the book, as are the Schwertner books, is written entirely in German.

Frankenjura Extreme



Sebastian Schwertner
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

Last but not least is this small and abridged guidebook from Sebastian Schwertner, written for extreme climbers. This guidebook details, in English, the places you'll want to go in the northern Frankenjura if you warm up on 5.11. It is definitely written for the visiting climber and is therefore probably the best guidebook for the area for those of you thinking of coming for a visit. If you're interested in buying it beforehand you can get it at the given link, or I'll sell you my copy for €5 and you can pick it up from me when you get here.
To clarify, the book provides directions and descriptions for hard crags, which also often contain easier routes. So it's not exclusively for hard climbs.

PURCHASE THIS ITEM

This is the only guidebook for the region. Fortunately, it's also a very good one! Well-researched and with good descriptions, this guidebook leaves almost nothing to be desired.

Pfalz



Jens Richter, Sabine Tittel / Panico Verlag
PURCHASE THIS ITEM

In general, route development in the Pfalz has slowed, so while you can certainly get this brand new guidebook with up-to-date routes, an older guidebook would also suffice.
