The Berner Oberland is one of my favorite regions in the Alps; second only to the Pennine Alps (for me). Climbed the Moench, Jungfrau and a number of minor peaks in the Aletschgletscher area, as well as from the Bluemlisalphuette.
Numerous visits dating back to 1973 Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1973
Climbed the 3 main peaks above Kandersteg on my 1st alpine experience in 1973 (Frundenhorn, Doldenhorn, Blumlisalp). Over the years have repeated ascents of all 3 plus added in the 2 others in the group. Have also made some ascents in the Loeschental section and Grindlewald areas.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
