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.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
