Accordingly is his Alpstein climbing guide has become the essential bag command for all climbing enthusiasts and is extremely popular, not least because of the detailed topos and the additional information about the routes.

A lot has happened in the Alpstein since the third edition of the climbing guide was published in 2011. New areas like Asher North or the wall base plates of the Schafbergwand were developed and extensively renovated.

All in all Werner Küng publishes more than 400 new routes - meticulously documented as usual.
