'CLIMBER' Simelistock, Switzerland, a new mounted black and white photographic image after an original 1930's mountaineering photograph. Black & white alpine photos are the perfect addition to any home or ski lodge, so please do check out our other ski photos and winter landscapes.

Engelhoerner is the name for a group of limestone mountains that are hidden behind several higher mountains like the Wetterhorn and Wildgerst. These small mountains (Rosenlauistock (2198 m), the Kingspitz, Simmelistock, Mittelgruppe, etc.) are well sort after by rock climbers as there is a huge choice of easy and difficult routes.

Within the Engelhoerner is a tiny valley, called Ochsental, looking to the west. The first Engelhorn hut was built in this valley in the year 1912 by the Academic Alpine Club Berne, since this lonesome and creekless valley is the starting point for the majority of the climbs. An avalanche destroyed this hut and the present accomodation is surrounded by trees at the foot of the Simelistock, 15 minutes below the Ochsen Valley.

The Ochsen Valley is surrounded by the following peaks (starting north clockwise):
Klein Simelistock, Gross Simelistock, Vorderspitze, Gertrudspitze, Ulrichspitze, Mittelspitze Kl. Engelhorn, Gemsenspitze, Gr. Engelhorn, Haubenstock, Niklausspitze, Froschkopf, Prinzen, Kingspitz, Kastor, Pollux, Sattelspitze, Engelburg, Tannspitze, Rosenlauistock.
