So which is the best guidebook for Bernese Oberland for alpine routes?

And which is the best informative book to just refresh oneself on alpine techniques?

In reply to An Triubhas: It is an old one but Alpine Climbing by John Barry is a good one

In reply to An Triubhas: The AC guide to the Oberland is pretty decent. Has a lot of rock in it too.

In reply to r.greaves: Brue Goodlad's book:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Alpine-Mountaineering-Essential-Knowledge-Alpinists/dp/1906095302

I think it's the clearest and most up to date alpine climbing book I've seen.

Hey Stuart58 how old is your copy?

To others, the Bruce Goodlad book looks good thanks :-)

+1 for the Bruce Goodlad book. It also has a limited guidebook in the back of the book, which is handy.
