Presented here is an incredibly diverse climbing landscape situated in the middle of the highest mountains of Switzerland - however, this is a rock climbing guide and does not describe alpine routes, though some alpine skills may be needed to reach and descend from some of them.
Good maps, lots of black and white photodiagrams and a good selection of colour action shots.
