Mountaineering in the Swiss Alps

High Peaks and Classic Climbs in Switzerland


£14.95 
 

Mountaineering in the Swiss Alps presents a selection of classic routes in the main Swiss climbing areas that have forged Switzerland's 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 Monch; others are on lesser-known summits and will delight those who like getting away from the beaten track. Written by mountaineer and author Stephane Maire, each route features technical notes, a route description and topo, and photos illustrating the climb's unique character.

Stephane Maire is a secondary school teacher with qualifications in electrical engineering and geology. He enjoys every aspect of mountaineering and has climbed extensively in the Mont Blanc Range and the Eastern Alps. Stephane's other books include Alpes valaisannes: Chemins de Lumiere, published by Olizane, Du Cervin au Leman, Les plus beaux tours du Valais, published by Glenat, and Par-dela les Cimes: Selection d'itineraires en Suisse, published by the Swiss Alpine Club. He also contributes to climbing magazines in Switzerland and France.
