Hello all, I am moving to Innsbruck in December for 7 years and wan to get the low down on crags there. Any favorites from people and recommendations on guide books to get? I have posted this on the Alpine and winter climbing board as well.

I've got the guide from the second site which is great for rock around Innsbruck, more guides listed here:

Everywhere I've been down the Zillertal valley has been awesome.

In reply to cyberpunk: I live in Germany now and we go to Austria a few times every year. Climbers Paradise is a great website for route info and topos. The tourist info offices in Innsbruck, Oetztal, and Pitztal all have great info on climbing and much of it is free. All the locations I have been to are very well marked, offer a variety of difficulties and all are very well secured. The website is very well named!

PS - I am planning a trip over to Scotland in a couple of weeks and I am looking for something similar. Any ideas or tips where a relative beginner can find info on climbing in Scotland?
