What people are saying:

I thought this was the cemetery of the locals, but after reading the introduction, I realized that it was the cemetery of the climbers. It is on the right side of the picture. In the background are the Alps and small wooden houses.

    The cemetery reminds us that it's not all fun and games up on the mountain.

    Interesting and sobering to read the (brief) elaborations that accompany the epitaphs. Unfortunately many of them are difficult or impossible to read, and thee is no apparent effort to preserve them.
