Detailed Product Description
Germany, Verlag Hallwag Bern, 1961, 3rd ed. 232 p., 34 b/w photos. Hardcover with foxing to covers. Interior is fine. Near Fine.

Some of the largest classic first ascents are led by Alexander Burgener (1846-1910), such as the Zmuttgrat on the Matterhorn, the Grépon in the Mont Blanc area and the Mittelegigrat on the Eiger in the descent. Famous alpinists (Mummery, Déchy, Güßfeldt and others) committed him to their mountain trips, not only in the Swiss Alps, but as far as the Caucasus. Alexander Burgener, as a person and as a guide, comes alive in these pages: warm-hearted, calm and with his own sense of humor as the son, husband, father and rope companion of his tourists, safe, unshakable and bold as a guide, familiar with all circumstances and moods of the mountains.
