swiss mountain recommendations

Postby Dan Bailey » Tue Apr 25, 2006 4:17 pm

I've never climbed in Switzerland, but plan to spend a couple of weeks there in July. I'm looking for a base from which it's convenient to reach several classic 4000m peaks via pleasant easy routes. If there happen to be some mid grade icy faces and quality rock routes on lower level peaks too, then it's all good. Can anyone suggest a suitable spot?

Randa. Less expensive and better camping than Zematt and much more centrally located.

Yes,Randa is a good place.Near to Zermatt and Tasch-gives possibilites to climb some 4000 meters peaks in nearby area like Dom via normal route.

Kandersteg is off the beaten path but right on the railway - you can be in the Valais or in the Berner Oberland quickly. Has a number of fine peaks right on its doorstep. Condos galor at very reasonable prices.
