Normalwege und alternative Routen
From the Höllengebirge to the Nockberge, from the Wilder Kaiser to the Dachstein, from the Glockner Group to the Lower Tauern, from the Kitzbühel Alps to the Watzmann – Salzburg Alpinist and writer Thomas Neuhold devotes his latest mountain book to the main peaks of the various mountain groups. With over 200 pages, this selective guide introduces the entire élite of the Alpine peaks in the region. Thomas Neuhold describes the customary routes to these destinations. Technical challenges range from the simple mountain hike, through medium glacier tours, up to grade II (without ropes). A must-have for mountain hikers and classic mountaineers. Thoroughly familiar with the area, Neuhold offers a whole variety of alternative routes and additional suggestions, so that this guide contains some 200 ascents in the Austrian Alps, including a few real rarities. For every tour there are sketch-maps, photos, advice on equipment and information on Alpine huts and mountain inns, and how to get to the starting-point.
