The ultimate guidebook for grade 8 UIAA and beyond
It supposed to be the first climbing guidebook for the well-known Northern Frankenjura
, which is written only in English.
The book is based on unique and very popular 2 volume Kletterführer Frankenjura. (recently reprinted black stripes cover) and describes about 120 cliffs and more than 2000 routes its about one fifth of the whole amount of the routes reported in Frankenjura.
We haven’t discovered ultimate
, though this book is definitely worth to have in the bookshelf.
Every cliff comes with a detailed description, approach and map. For every route there is a short text so you know what to expect and many detailed realistic pictures.
So far there are these options B. Thum, H. Rocker, S. Schwertner
), or website Frankenjura.com

The question is if it has sense to buy this book if you already have some of above mentioned full size guidebooks?
We would say that this book is very handy for two kind of people. For those who are good and experienced climbers and for those who are newbies in Frankenjura.
