Review
Topo-based guide to climbs in the Hochkönig group on mountains to the south of Salzburg. As with all Panico guides in this series the topos are also reproduced on pocket-sized pull-out cards.

The author is responsible for many more first ascents in these mountains than any other climber, but also linked to the Sigi-bolt controversy. The Precht routes are generally either unbolted or bolted with these home-made bolts, although an action started in 2008 to replace Sigi-bolts with approved bolts, including two at belays.
