In 1968 Baroness Felicitas von Reznicek
(1903 – 1997) who lived in Engelberg, Switzerland, founded Rendez-vous Hautes Montagnes (RHM), a coming together of women alpinists, on the summit of Titlis. A year earlier she had published “Von der Krinoline zum sechsten Grad”, a book about women climbing mountains. Since then there have been annual meetings of women climbers from all over Europe, always meeting in a different place, overcoming political and ideological boundaries, climbing together. They included famous names such as Loulou Boulaz, Yvette Vaucher, Jeanne Franco, Silvia Metzeltin, and the Polish mountaineer Wanda Rutkiewicz.
