In the new edition of the Wilder Kaiser hiking guide by Rosenheim's Kaiser expert Markus Stadler, the previous 'pleasure' guide and the 'extreme' guide are now combined in 384 pages, to form one climbing guide. All the climbing mountains, all the mountain walls and all the worthwhile routes are outlined in detail and photographed, on the mountains themselves. There are over 200 routes ranging from difficulty scales three to nine in the new "Kaiser bible". Markus Stadler has been investigating the mountains on foot, on skis and on the vertical for over two decades.
An expert of the Wilder Kaiser, with in-depth knowledge, he has covered the majority of the routes himself and has also drawn upon insider knowledge from the alpine climbing scene. As a result, all the interesting new tours of recent times have found their way into the book. For pleasure climbers the author recommends routes in the Westkaiser, above Scheffau, such as Sonneck, Kopfkraxen and the Multerkarwand, particularly in autumn since the south-facing sides are sunny for a long time, whereas the Totenkirchl and the Stripsenjoch are somewhat shady and are therefore a 'cool' tip for the summer. Extreme climbers will probably set their sights on the Steinerne Rinne and the Fleischbank. For all alpine aficionados the Wilder Kaiser climbing guide, published by Panico Alpinverlag, is certainly a great companion while you are out and about in the mountains.
