Andrist Mountains

Two of the Swiss Alps are named Andrist. The first one's name is "Wild Andrist" (meaning, "wild Andrist"), and it stands 2,849 meters above sea level. The other, "Zahm Andrist" (meaning, "tame Andrist"), stands 2,648 meters above sea level.

You've probably seen them, but not known it. The closest mountain to the Andrist mountains is the Schilthorn, also known as Piz Gloria. When James Bond fought against Blofeld (Telly Savalas) in "On Her Majesty’s Secret Service" (1969), some camera shots included the Andrist peaks.
