Book: Mountaineering In The Swiss Alps
High peaks and classic climbs in Switzerland
Author: Stéphane Maire
Mountaineering in the Swiss Alps presents a selection of classic routes in the main Swiss climbing areas that have forged Switzerlands reputation as a mountaineering paradise.
Featured are over thirty climbs, ranging from relatively easy normal routes to more challenging itineraries.
All are within the capabilities of most mountaineers and provide an excellent introduction to the wide variety of climbing that Switzerland has to offer.
Every route, whether it is a pure rock climb, a mixed ridge, a big north face or a long traverse, was chosen for the beauty of the surroundings and the quality of the climbing.
Some are on world famous peaks that every mountaineer aspires to climb, such as the Matterhorn (Mont Cervin), the Breithorn and the Mönch; others are on lesser-known summits and will delight those who like getting away from the beaten track.
Written by mountaineer and author Stéphane Maire, each route features technical notes, a route description and topo, and photos illustrating the climbs unique character.
