Rope Climbing in the Alps

Unlike the Rockies, the Alps often have routes with large diameter ropes affixed to the mountain. Athletic rock climbing ability is not normally required, but you should expect rope-length sections of climbing. Excellent fitness is required, and this includes upper body strength that will be needed to haul yourself up any ropes that present themselves. Climbing the Alps is really fun and engaging! But you'll need to include your arms while preparing in the gym!
