Escalades: Jura, Vaud, Chablais, Bas-Valais, Sanetsch

Published Privately published (2010)

The guidebook covers the area north of Lake Geneva, the Rhone valley down to Martigny and also the area around Leysin and Les Diablerets. 287 pages, 36 areas each with several crags, and the crags are covered comprehensively, i.e. both easy and hard routes are included. For hard routes (6b/c+ upwards) a much better option than the filidor Extreme West which has almost no coverage for this area. For easier routes it includes many smaller crags not in Plaisir West, the only notable omission from Plaisir West being Pissevache, although Plaisir West also includes two crags south of the Rhone valley between Martigny and Sion, namely Bramois and Pierre Avoi. Almost impossible to get outside of Switzerland (except by ordering off the internet?!), they have it in Passe Montagne in Monthey for about 55 Swiss francs.
