A handy and very well priced guidebook to mountain activities based in Chamonix in the French Alps. Selections of graded routes are described for walking, trekking, mountaineering, mountain biking, road cycling, via ferratas, rock climbing and bouldering, with clear advice for novices for each activity, including a section on glacier travel. A superb book to have to hand for those days when when climbing in the high alps is precluded by the weather.

All the sections have basic information on gear, terrain, technique and access for each activity and a range of contrasting routes, illustrated with maps or topos as necessary. There are also notes about activities such as rafting, canyoning, paragliding and trail running and things to do when it rains. Clear overview maps to help you choose and plan your days.
