The Aiguilles Rouges are the range of peaks on the other side of the Chamonix Valley to the Mont Blanc Range. They sit outside of the rain shadow of the major summits and so are often in climbable condition when the higher peaks are not. However, outside of a few popular training climbs such as the Index, this is still an adventurous area with glacier approaches and long (up to 12 pitch) rock routes such as the classic Voie des Dalles (F5c) on the Pouce.
 
The guide is in English throughout and features over 170 major climbs on the Chamonix valley side of the range, many of which are quickly accessible via telepherique.
 
Areas covered in this volume are: Brévent, Plampra - Charlanon, Index - Glière - Pouce, Floria - Gapard - Crochues, Belvédère - Chamois - Persévérance, Chézerys.
 
Lots of excellent line topos and monochrome photodiagrams. Some colour photos.
