In the last years more than 1850 boulder problems have been done in the grade Fb 1 - 8b+ (bloc) and up to 8c (trav) in 26 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 4th edition: 64 pages more compared to the previous edition: 380 new problems! 1 new area!
The boulder field in Hinterstein offers now more than 870 problems (and all done!) and is one of the biggest in the northern Alps. The rock type of most boulders there is dolomite, the climbing is like a mix of sandstone and gneiss. Also at the Kraftboulder have been done more than 100 new problems, therefore the area is now the number two in the Allgäu with more than 160 lines up to 8b+. For the first time the valley of Gunzesried is described with currently 2 sectors.
