The Frankenjura is a big range of limestone crags in South-East Germany, north and east of Nurnberg. Some of the hardest bolted sport climbs in the world are located here - but there is a good range of other grades too.
This topo guide is in German, but with an English introduction, and excellent clear maps and diagrams, it should be reasonably comprehensible to even the most partisan Brit. Grades are UIAA but a conversion chart is also included.
Band (Volume) 2 covers the southern half of the range: Walberla, Trubachtal, Betzensteiner Gebiet, Spieser Gebiet, Sittenbachtal, Pegnitztal, Krottenseer Forst, Hirschbachtal, Schwarzer Brand, Königsteiner Gebiet, Lehental, Högenbachtal and Förrenbachtal, Lauterachtal. It includes the famous Action Directe (11, 9a/5.14d) at Waldkopf.
Colour action photos and black and white topo diagrams.
