Review

Simple paper guide in German, but does exactly as required and with translation or local advice crags will be found and routes climbed!

13 locations covered, most not listed on UKC (the smaller/quieter ones)

Still on sale in 2019 at the Saas Grund Tourist Office (next to Denner; alternatively, opposite the big church) for 28 CHF. It is to be noted that the most popular crags in the valley at Feechi and the Kapellengraben have more-up-to date topo boards in place at the crag, and the higher mountain crags at Jägihorn and Dri Horlini are covered in the more mainstream guides such as Plaisir West. However, besides these, there are some promising-looking moderate multi-pitch routes near Saas Almagell, and smaller crags with climbs mostly in the range 6a-7c and the occasional 5.
