The funalps site is supported by the Alpine Club and provides an English language doorway to route descriptions (mainly) on the www.camptocamp.org (c2c) site.
c2c is a non-commercial, “wiki” type site, by climbers for climbers. It has been running for 19 years, (9 years as c2c,) and has about 30,000 route descriptions, mainly for the Western Alps. The descriptions are mostly in French and can be awkward for the English language user. The funalps site aims to address this problem.
The funalps site consists of eight categories of selected outings lists. After selecting a list one can then click on a chosen route to access, ( in most cases,) an English translation of the route description on the c2c site. The category pages also give details of the many relevant guidebooks.
If you find funalps useful, it is recommended you register with the c2c site, which is free, quick and easy. This allows you to edit and improve the route descriptions, as well as adapting the interface options to your own needs. The more climbers that contribute, the better the site will become.
One of the main aims of the Alpine Club is the dissemination of Alpine route information and to this end it has produced the definitive guidebooks to the Alps for the last 150 years. By cooperating with camptocamp, the AC hopes to continue this tradition through the internet.
