The Schweiz Plaisir Sud guidebook describes the rock climbing and sport climbing at grades up to F6c in the Southern Swiss Alps. The guidebook covers the area around Bellinzona, including all the rock climbing around the Albigna Hut. Also included are areas in Italy such as Lake Como, Aosta and Torino, and the Val Durance area in France.
In total 81 separate crags are detailed ranging from single pitch sport routes to long alpine style multi-pitch routes. For each crag the type of equipment required is detailed. So for single pitch sport routes rope length and number of quickdraws are detailed. For the multi-pitch routes the type of ropes required and any additional equipment such as nuts and cams are detailed.
At the start of each area there is a good location map, along with a description. The crag topo's are very clear, with all the routes given French grades (each pitch if appropriate).
Published in 2011 this guidebook is written in German, French and Italian text throughout.
