Classic Routes in the Écrins is a very welcome modern guidebook to summer alpine mountaineering in the Écrins, Oisans, Valgaudemar and Valjouffrey. Focussing on climbs of moderate difficulty (nothing harder than D) but encompassing all styles of routes, it will be an indispensable aid to planning your alpine adventures. 
 
As well as classic routes and famous peaks, it presents numerous less prestigious but equally beautiful summits and passes, together with variants and ideas for traverses and a selection of multi-day alpine circuits. 
 
The up to date route descriptions take in to account recent changes caused by reduced snow cover and glacial retreat. For every route, detailed information about the approach to the climb and the descent is followed by advice on the best strategy to adopt for the climb. 
  • 80 routes (from F to D).
  • 20 Variants.
  • 10 alpine tours.
  • 27 detailed maps.
  • 153 photos.
  • 147 action photos.
In English.
