For most climbers, a trip to Chamonix is an integral part of their climbing and mountaineering career. When there you want to try everything; perfect granite rock routes, magnificent long ridges, intimidating north faces and then also have some valley sport climbing for the ‘rest days’. Or maybe you just want to tick Mont Blanc.
The South of France has always been one of the most popular climbing destinations in Europe due to its excellent record of fine weather and superb limestone cliffs. The guide lists 52 cliffs of individual merit.
