Review

Alpine guidebook in German, similar in style and format to the [British] Alpine Club series , with a comprehensive guide to the peaks within the area bounded by the Grimsel-Furka-Sustenpass roads. Rock climbing areas actually form the majority of the content, including the west side of the Grimsel pass, and are covered with basic line-drawn and some photo-topos. The coverage in this respect is similar to Plaisir Ost while also containing the harder routes on the crags. Looking dated (outdated?) now (1st edition was 1996), but still useful for readers of German with 57CHF to spare, who climb hard and like the UIAA grading scale.
