/ Austria (Tyrol) winter guide book
I'm looking for a guide book for Austria, i cant find much, preferably in english (but i'll get by in German or other) as long as the topos etc are ok.
Any suggestions ?
Chris, eiskletterfuhrer in Tirol is published by Alpin Verlag I think. You can see a preview on their website, it's about £42 to buy I think. Otherwise climbers paradise website and app. I got a free copy of the kaunertal guide from the tourist office in Feichten. The new eispark at Oberreid isn't covered anywhere as last year was the first time. There's also the Eispark Osttirol near Matrei, which has info on it's site.
Maybe worth looking at Panico.de - I’ve used plenty of their ski touring guidebooks for that area and they’re very good (clearly and nicely presented) albeit in German. I know they do ice climbing guidebooks too but not used them.
Cheers John, Finally found it, eiskletterfuhrer in Tirol looks good, if a little pricey.
