Two flatland tyrolean bouldering sportclimbing freaks wanted to go high up. Finally they reached the top of Grand Capucin but found it always goes higher and higher and higher... Nice pictures of the Grand Capucin ascent and two little videos of the bergschrund and a 'little' storm in the tent. Simon did well. It was his first multipitch alpine climb at all. Wikipedia says: "Der Grand Capucin [gʀɑ̃ kapyˈsɛ̃] ist ein 3838 m hoher Berg in der französischen Mont-Blanc-Gruppe. Er gilt als der am schwierigsten zu besteigende Berg der Alpen (Normalweg im VII. Grad). Er erhebt sich als riesiger Felsobelisk knapp 400 Meter aus dem Glacier du Géant und ist..."

In this episode of Al-Kee-Hol, we followed our host Dominique Rousake on a trip along the “Route de l’Absinthe”, the beautiful French-Swiss absinthe route, and watched as he learns about the history and effects of absinthe—the potent, anise-flavored spirit that was a favorite of Vincent van Gogh, Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, as well as many more artists and thinkers. Dominique meets up with the owners of French and Swiss distilleries to find out more about the differences between their nations’ varieties of absinthe. They share a few of the stories about how and why absinthe was made illegal—and how people continued to make it anyway. The people who live along the absinthe route are crazy about the "green fairy," and we witness their passion firsthand. The journey trave...

The Grand Capucin is an extraordinary red granit tower in the Mont Blanc Group . It has an E face rising steeply out of the Géant Glacier. It is situated at the end of the east side of the Mont Blanc du Tacul . You can't miss it when you go from the Aiguille du Midi to the Rifugio Torino. It is a wonderful rock obelisk on the glacier du Géant. Particularly noticeable are the rows of overhangs which at one time suggested it was unclimbable, but Bonatti found a winding route which goes over some of the overhangs, but in general works its way up between the great roofs; the climbing is quite literally, geometrically vertical, something quite exceptional on granite. Although its faces are not higher than 490 m and although the mountain can be seen only from the summits around, it has been inte...

The Swiss Path is the name given to a special national path in central Switzerland opened in 1991. It makes a loop around one arm of Lake Lucerne, starting in Rütli and passing through Bauen, Flüelen, Sisikon and Morschach, finishing at Brunnen. The total length is around 35 km (22 mi). The route recognises each of the cantons making up Switzerland, with markers announcing each canton along the route. The length of route for each canton is proportional to the population at the time of building, and the order is determined by the order in which the cantons joined the Swiss federation. http://www.guozhongwan.com/

The Glacier Express is a train which connects the two major mountain resorts of St. Moritz and Zermatt in the Swiss Alps. It is not an "express" in the sense of being a high-speed train but rather in the sense that it provides a one-seat ride for a long duration travel. In fact it has the reputation of being the slowest express train in the world. It takes 7,5 hours to journey across 291 bridges, through 91 tunnels and across the Oberalp Pass on the highest point at 2,033 m (6,670 ft) in altitude. The entire line is metre gauge (narrow gauge railway). The Glacier Express is run jointly by two private Swiss railways, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn (MGB) and the Rhätische Bahn (RhB), who also operate the regular local trains and freight trains over the same route. The panorama cars were i...
Hiking the Schynige Platte-Faulhorn-First-Grindelwald Route
One time a long time ago on a mountain in Switzerland yo lo lo lo lo
There lived a fair young maiden lovely but lonely oh oh
Day after day she'd find her heart away yo lo lo lo lo hey cause no love came her way
One day her papa'd say some day you'll go down to the willage in the valley
There you'll meet a nice young man ask for your hand then you'll be happy
[ ac.guitar ]
But every day she grew unhappy on the mountain in Switzerland yo lo lo lo lo
Every day a little bit lonelier which way to turn which way to go
Day after day she'd find her heart away yo lo lo lo lo hey cause no love come her way
Some say the maidens dreams never came true she'd never got to go to the valley
If she didn't he really don't know oh oh oh did she die unhappy
Well now I'd rather think she found her love I would be rather if she'd find love
