Extreme Alpine Rock

This table is a list of the routes in the coffee table book Extreme Alpine Rock by Walter Pause and Jurgen Winkler along with details of my ascents of them.

This book was the inspiration behind the Hard Rock series of books edited by Ken Wilson.

Since the Bonatti Pillar (Route 15) has all but fallen down in recent years, a reasonable alternative would be the American Direct on the Petit Dru.

There are links to any trip reports or photos in the notes column. The table is colour coded: No-colour = Not done it; green=done it; dark blue = tried it; orange = done one or more of the group
