Rock Climbing Photo: Sport climbing at Reimer's Ranch.
I'll be visiting Central Europe for the first time in a couple of weeks, and I'm looking for people to climb with while I'm there!

I'll be flying in and out of Frankfurt, and I will probably try to make a trip to Frankenjura at some point. I'm also very interested in going to Switzerland and climbing there as well.

I do bouldering and sport climbing (up to about 7a/5.11d/5.5, sometimes a little harder if the climb is my style) and will be bringing my own lead rope and about 10 draws. My dates are from 7-31 to 8-12 (the first half of August, almost).

Is anybody doing some climbing during that time? Mind if I come along? :)

Last week I was in Germany and climbed at Albsandstein. Which is one of the oldest trad areas in the world. If you want I can hook you up with the guide I hired, he is pretty cheap and a strong climber. The area borders Czech Republic and Germanyso it is more southwest. Let me know and I can hook you up with his contacts Ryan Chelstowski

I may be available sporadically. I live and work here, so I'd only be available in the afternoons/evenings and possibly on weekends. It just rained here in the Frankenjura, and before that, even though there was a dry period of about 3 weeks, there were several crags which were still surprisingly wet. Nonetheless, you can still climb here during and after rain, as opposed to the Elbsandstein area that Ryan suggested.
I'll talk to my wife and try to set something up with you. Send me an email through MP with some contact info.
