Anyone recommend a good guide book that shows topos for the classic Grindelwald area high mountain routes, including Eiger Mittellegi ridge?
Thanks in advance
The Hochtouren series by Daniel Silbernagel is very good. But, the Oberland and Valais books are out of print until summer 2020.
Although in German, the books rely largely on topos and map extracts and have an English introduction that explains how to use the book.
I have the Graubunden book in This series and it's fine to use without reading German. All the essentials are in the topo.
I've been looking for an alternative. The SAC guidebooks look terrible. And nothing else looks good enough.
I've decided to wait for a reprint of the Silbernagel books.
PS the AC book by Martin Moran covers all the Oberland 4000ers, but sadly not the Eiger.

The 5th annual 'Striding Edge by Torchlight' event, which took place on Saturday night, saw 40 people traverse the ridge in aid of Cumbria's search and rescue teams.
