Hi all,

Bit of a long shot really but I'm wondering if anyone has been bouldering out in Switzerland, and specifically in the Martigny area (Branson, Gueroz and La Balmaz). I've been on a bit of an internet wild goose chase and am struggling to find the topos ... I know that this 2003 guide covers the area but am assuming that its out of print.

If anyone has a copy or knows where I can get one, info would be greatly appreciated!

In reply to 10biscuits: You'll find copies of that book in shops in Switzerland. Try http://www.la-haut.ch/ or http://www... or probably better still go to the new wall in Saxon http://www.vertic-halle.ch/

Good magazine article here if you read french.

Cheers Graham, that new wall looks pretty damn good! Will definitely go and check that out. I'll send them a message too and see if they carry copies of topos for the area. Thanks for the info!

I think the bimano.ch website covers these areas. Not sure exactly as they are in the process of updating the website. But for Kandertal they have/had plenty of good photo topos and info (in German). Well worth keeping an eye on for the new website/app when it launches.
