Hi 

I'm looking for some advise, I'm off to bavaria and Austria soon and was wandering if it's easy to pick up climbing guides in the area.

I'm looking at some big multi pitch stuff, nothing harder than French 6b ideally as my partner doesn't really climb... Style doesn't really matter, just looking for cool lines and exposure.

The tour has frankenjura, fussen, zugspitze, königssee, salzburg.. Possibly wilder kaiser or zillertal area. I'm open to suggestions of quality areas or routes and what guide books would suit. I'm OK for frankenjura. 

Thanks in advance

I don't know if it is easy to pick up guide books in these areas. I usually buy before I go.

The Globetrotter shop in Munich has all the guides you could ever want. Can't advise on shops elsewhere though. There is a climbing shop in Landsberg but I don't know what their guidebook stocks are like.

Bergsteigen.com has lots and lots of topos in your grades. 

If you are finde with long walk ins, the south face of Hochkönig has some of the best rock on the planet.
