As per usual, Sebastian Schwertner provides detailed information on the lesser-known areas of Franconia in the 13th edition of the climbing guide. This edition has been expanded by eight pages to a total of 584 pages and, combined with Volume 1, contains over 1100 pages of information on the 12,600 climbing routes in the northern Franconian Jura. Volume 2 specifically describes 6500 routes and includes comments on nearly every route, which are both helpful on site and entertaining to read later on. The guide includes a download code for a free app for iOS and Android that provides access to all Franconian topos, as well as QR codes and GPS coordinates of starting points and parking lots. The guide covers a range of areas including Walberla, Trubachtal, Betzensteiner area, Spieser area, Schnaittacher area, Pegnitztal, Krottensee Forest, Hirschbachtal, Königsteiner area, Lehental, Högenbachtal, Förrenbachtal, and the Lauterbachtal. Volume 1 covers all rocks north of the Forchheim-Pegnitz line and is also available for purchase. The guide includes a free three-year app, and for any app-related inquiries, the Vertical-Life team can be contacted directly.
