A new guide to the rock routes in the popular Aiguilles Rouges situated on the southern side of the Chamonix Valley. The guide is fully illustrated with colour and B/W action shots and every crag / cliff has a detailed easy to follow topo. Published in the same format as his last guide to the Envers Des Aiguilles; this new guide will prove to be invaluable to visiting climbers wishing to get out on the crags when the higher Mont Blanc massif is inaccessible due to bad weather.
A new guide covering the Cerces and Queyras and the first of its kind to this area - 344 routes are described including straight-forward snow 'plods', mixed climbs of all grades and the classic mountaineering routes of the area; the guide also describes the ski-mountaineering available in the area.
Chamonix is the most famous climbing area in Europe. Nowhere else has as much quality rock, spectacular peaks and varied mountaineering history. 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.
Translated from the popular French guidebook, this gives a fine introduction to the area for British hill walkers visiting the Alps for the first time.
Mountaineering in the Mont Blanc Range showcases the most beautiful lower grade snow, ice and mixed climbs (F to AD+) in the seemingly inexhaustible Mont Blanc Range. The routes described in this book should be within the capabilities of almost all mountaineers.
