A selection of the highest quality alpine routes in Switzerland's key climbing areas

Mountaineering in the Swiss Alps presents a selection of 30 or so classic routes. All are within the capabilities of experienced 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.
