Despite the sub-title, this guide describes a completely different high level route between Chamonix and Zermatt, some way to the north of the what most ski mountaineers would deem the Classic Haute Route, and avoiding all those nasty glaciers etc. It is perhaps best known as the Walker's Haute Route. This 225km route typically takes two weeks to walk. Described in 14 stages, the route crosses 11 passes between Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn and involves more than 14,000m of ascent and descent, taking in delightful villages and remote hamlets, wild flower meadows and forests, exquisite mountain tarns and lonely corries inhabited by marmots, chamois and ibex.

A well produced guide for planning and walking the route, with accommodation information and lots of clear maps and good colour photos.

By the late Kev Reynolds.
