Schweiz plaisir Ost


Dear Climbers, thanks to the ever busy route developers since the previous edition of the “Switzerland Plaisir EAST” climbing guidebook in 2007, new routes were created and many of the older routes have been retrofitted and upgraded with todays new standards in hardware. In the interest of keeping the guidebook compact, some areas appearing in the old guide were omitted to make room for the new areas. New for this guidebook, it is divided into 6 distinct areas. This provides a better over all view and orientation to the area. “Switzerland Plaisir EAST” has something for (practically) everyone and something for every season. The crags above Gersau and at Haldenstein are very worthwhile visits in winter and spring. In summer and fall, the higher up almost alpine areas reach their peak climbing season. Long known and popular are the routes on the Susten, Furka, and Klausen Passes. Newly included here are the fantastic routes on Lunghin Lake and the multi-pitch crags above the Lindauer Hut. “Känzele” in Bregenz and the Plaisir areas of Oetz Valley are new areas included here. “Känzele” is easily reached from Eastern Switzerland and has a good selection of conglomerate climbs to choose from. Predestined for the makings of a perfect family vacation in the Oetz Valley: Well protected routes, bomber rock quality, nice flat landings at the base of the routes. You can always find a nice cool place to climb here during the summer months. I am proud to present to you “Schweiz plaisir OST”. Check it out and do some fun climbs.
