||Eastern Alps: The Classic Routes on the Highest Peaks (Teach Yourself)
Dieter Seibert gives advice on hut approaches and essential grading and technical considerations, and then provides descriptions of the classic ascent routes of all the main peaks. The glaciated ranges of the Eastern Alps encompass the Bernina and Silvretta ranges of Switzerland, the Ortler/Adamello groups on the Austro/Swiss/Italian borders and all the main Austrian groups - the Otztal, Stubai, Zillertal and Gross Glockerner. Even the far flung Dachstein and Marmolada ranges have small glaciers. All the main peaks in these ranges involve glacier approaches and thus become technical mountaineering expeditions, requiring proper skills and training.
