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...

ZRH-DUS: Lucky enought to fly the A340-300 on a inter-europe route. Lately Swiss has been flying them to Geneva and Hanover but now Dusseldorf is fairly common, at least in the month of July. It was a beautiful day in Zurich with partly cloudy skies. We departed about an hour late late due to air traffic control restrictions. I've noticed that in Zurich, when departing around 17:00, there are typically delays (at least it's happened to me 3 times when flying out around that time of day).

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 Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT) is a railway tunnel in the heart of the Swiss Alps expected to open in 2016. With a route length of 57 km (35.4 mi) and a total of 151.84 km (94.3 mi) of tunnels, shafts and passages, it is the world's longest rail tunnel, surpassing the Seikan Tunnel in Japan. Its main purpose is to increase total transport capacity across the Alps, especially for freight, notably between Germany and Italy, and more particularly to shift freight volumes from road to rail to reduce environmental damage caused by ever-increasing numbers of heavy lorries. A secondary benefit will be to cut the journey time for passenger trains from Zürich to Milan by about an hour and from Zürich to Lugano to 1-hour 40 minutes. The project consists of two single-track tunnels. It is part of t...

Hiking 100 miles in 11 days through the Swiss Alps on the Haute Route. The Haute Route, is the name given to a route undertaken on foot or by ski touring between Chamonix in France and Zermatt in Switzerland. Our diverse group of 12 trekkers included 76 year old Jimmy Shetterly and he out-hiked us all! The Alps had the most snow in 37 years, so even though it was mid-summer, we encountered much of it on the trail. Parts of the trail were very icy, but we only had two falls during the hike, and unfortunately I participated in one of those. I was filming the group trekking by through the snow and when I stood up I lost my balance and slide down the mountain-face almost 100 feet just missing a huge boulder! Luckily I was unharmed and scampered back up to the trail to join the others. We f...
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
