Switzerland

Switzeland is to a large extent composed of mountain ranges. Guidebook coverage of alpine climbing in these areas in English is not so good since the Alpine Club Valais Alps guides went out of print. Better guides exist to much of Switzerland's superb rock climbing.

The major alpine areas are:
The Jura: The range bordering France north of Lake Geneva. Rather lower peaks, but still spectacular.
Mont Blanc Range: Borders France and Italy and includes many famous peaks in addition to Mt Blanc, such as the Aiguille Verte, the Grand Jorasses and the Dru, though none of these are in Switzerland.
Bernese Oberland: Situated in central Switzerland and includes such famou peaks as the Eiger and the Mönch.
Pennine (Valais) Alps: Forming the border with Italy, this range includes the Matterhorn and the Dent Blanche and is home to the famous Haute Route.
Ticino, Bregaglia & Engadine: These ranges are the continuation of the Italian border westwards and include the Piz Badile.
Eastern Alps: The very east of Switzerland, including ranges like the Silvretta.
