In the last years more than 1400 new boulder problems have been done in the grade Fb 1 - 8b+ (bloc) and up to 8c (trav) in 25 areas from the lake constance to Oberallgäu, the region around Füssen to the Lech-valley - a bouldering region of high interest for boulderers of all grades!
Almost unique is the difference of the type of rock you can find here close together. Apart of the dominating conglomerate-walls and -boulders you can also find sandstone, dolomite, marl and limestone in different variations - from ordinary limestone to super rough high-mountain-limestone on 2200 m above sea level.
You can find walls, boulders, circuits with numbers like in Fontainebleau, jugs, micro-edges, slabs, enormous overhangs.... in short a complete playground for all amateurs of bouldering and these who want to get into this fascinating sport.
And not to forget - all these in one of the most beautiful holiday-regions of Germany!
Easy to reach from Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland,....!
New in the 3rd edition: New completely coloured layout with almost 100 pages more compared to the previous edition.
3 new spots (Alpsee-Block, Vorderburg, Sonthofener Hof) and some new walls in already described areas (Maiselwände, Freidorf). The boulder field in Hinterstein developed in the meanwhile to a hot spot of the bouldering in Allgäu and offers with more than 660 problems (and all done!) nearly half the potential of the Allgäu. Herewith the area is one of the biggest in the northern Alps concerning the number of done problems in one boulder field. The rock type of most boulder blocks is dolomite, the climbing is like a mix of sandstone and gneiss.
