I will be a European nomad June 8 - 16, I have no plans, I am just going to roam around.  I will start my trip in Frankfurt Germany and rent a car from there.  I plan on doing a mix of camping in the car and hotels/hostels.  

But due to luggage restrictions, I will only have enough room for my harness and shoes.  I will see if I can stuff draws and rope in there, but that might be pushing it.....  If you know of some good trad multipitches (moderate grades YDS 5.8, French 5a) I will bring my rack.  

I'm not the strongest climber, but I am a very safe and competent climber, and good all around guy!  

Contact me here and maybe we can meet up!  I'd love for this to be a nomadic European road trip!

Hey Bryan, I'm studying in Leipzig right now. Ive got this weekend off if you'll be anywhere around the area. Maybe we can meet up and climb somewhere.

Hey Bryan, 

I am doing something similar. I start in Munich on the 9th of July and will make my way toward Tyrol area, Innsbruck and/or the Dolomites over mid June. I'm happy climbing 6 thru 7a however I love easy trad multipitch. Will have a 60m single rope and 10 alpine/draws. Let me know if you firm up your plans and maybe we can get a climb in.

Hi guys, I'm back in the USA now.  I ended up climbing in the Austrian Alps, Berchtesgaden.  Route was called Weder Blau Noch Sand, 6+.  A really nice bolted multipitch climb!  The tram is a bit pricey to get up there, 22 euro pax.  Well worth it!

Sam, you're not too far away in Munich!  I met another climber out there if you need a partner, but it'll be for easier stuff, like 4+ to 5- range.

Thanks mate. That's awesome.

Question - did you have a tent, or would you recommend bringing one for the area?

I stayed in a hotel in the city but they have a "hut" up there if you wanted it to be an alpine style of climb.  A european "hut" is more like a mountain hostel, not like a straw hut.  

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
