    I was planning on doing a trip hiking/climbing/camping over the summer with some friends and was wondering if anyone could recommend any good routes. We'd probably be doing a week or so.

    We'd probably be driving, so Western Europe would be best. But I'm not adverse to driving to Eastern Europe if it's worth it. (I did the Mongol Rally this Summer, so no amount of driving is too far!)

    thanks

    Don't know how experienced you are at climbing but I'd recommend some Via-ferrata, its bloody awesome. I sat here trying to describe it but its quite difficult but this link describes it to a t - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Via_ferrata
    Grossglokner in Austria is a really good route to do as a Via-ferrata and then you can say that you've been to the highest point in Austria =)
