The book is very well designed in terms of size and fits in any climbing backpack without being very heavy. This climbing guide is done in three languages, German, English and Italian.
The south of Austria is rich in beautiful climbing spots. Anyone who wants to let off steam here is well equipped with the book by Ingo Neumann. In the cover you will find a clear map, on which all described spots are listed and with which you can easily orientate yourself. After a short and informative introduction, one finds an instruction manual for the book as well as a difficulty table.
The climbing areas themselves are well organized: A header with the name of the area already visually assigns the individual areas. On the first page you can get the facts about the spot itself. Details such as orientation, the total number of routes and the best climbing time, even whether the rock dries quickly after rain, can be seen here. Also a route distribution is listed, you can see very quickly which difficulty of the routes is often represented at an area. The topo drawing itself is kept simple - the rock is very reduced, but easily recognizable. An altitude indication can be seen with an arrow at each page. All routes in the book are rated with the French scale.
In the back of the book you will find a statistic where the spots are assigned to difficulty levels in ascending order.
All in all, this book is highly recommended, not only for climbing beginner, but also for "old hands", who can probably discover or get to know more closely through this book one or the other climbing spot, which was not so familiar before.
