The Schweiz Plaisir Ost guidebook describes the rock climbing and sport climbing in the Eastern Swiss Alps at grades up to F6c. The guidebook covers the area from Luzern in central Switzerland, across to Pfaffikon and onto Chur in eastern Switzerland. A few cargs in western Austria are also included. There are many crags detailed including those around Grimsel, Andermatt, Altdorf, Sustenpass, Engleberg, Sargans, and Appenzell.

In total 75 separate crags are detailed with the guidebook split into 6 areas, which are:
(1) Susten - Furka - Oberalp
(2) Obwalden - Schwyz - Klausen
(3) Glarus - Weesen - Sargans
(4) Montafon - Graubunden
(5) Alpstein - Bregenz
(6) Otztal

The routes range from single pitch sport routes to long alpine style multi-pitch routes many 100’s of metres long. 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 useful information such as altitude, when the crag is in the sun and the style of climbing to be found. The crag topo's are very clear, with all the routes given French grades (each pitch if appropriate).

Published in May 2015 this guidebook is written in German, French and English text throughout.
