Actually, the Hochkönig area is just the southeastern tip of the Berchtesgaden Alps. A sub-area only, but what a sub-area! Everything here is extraordinary: the concentration of rock faces in a very small area, the outstanding quality of the rock, the very special development history. Since the Panico climbing guidebook of 2002, however, Hochkönig routes have only appeared sporadically in selection guides, and there was no climbing guidebook of its own. Instead, there is now a comprehensive area guide, compiled with scientific meticulousness, which finally corresponds to what the Hochkönig area is - one of the absolute top climbing areas in the entire Alps. With long, wild routes, for which the area was notorious for decades, but with an equal abundance of contemporary alpine sport climbing in a class of its own.
The book includes a download code for a 248-page eBook. You can expect finger-hole accurate verbal descriptions of numerous routes, pitch by pitch. Purists beware: after reading this information, an on-sight ascent of the presented route is de facto hardly possible ;))
