The Mont Blanc Range is renowed for the exceptional quality of its granite climbing - with hundreds of routes on perfect rock, the area draws climbers from all over the world. Volume 1 of Mont Blanc Granite describes the superb rock climbing to be found in the Argentière Basin, an area with a huge almost flat glacier and boasting cable car access and a large alpine hut which makes a brilliant base.

The descriptions include clear and up-to-date information about approaches and descents, the state of any fixed gear and the difficulty of the climbing. All of this is beautifully illustrated with photos and topo diagrams. There are 99 routes described on 15 different crags. Grades range from 4c to 7b (French, naturellement!)
A superb little guide, small and light enough to take with you on the route.
