A glossy guide aimed at alpinists seeking lower grade snow, ice and mixed climbs in the Mont Blanc range.

36 classic routes are described (ranging in grade from F to AD+) with up to date details of current (as of publication date) glacial topography. Please click the photos to see a list of all the routes described.

The routes described are an ideal introduction to the climbing in this magnificent area. They are on snow or mixed ground and, distributed among the main glacier basins, they will enable you to visit a representative selection of summits along the full length of the range. Among them are some of the finest classics, including: the North Face of the Tête Blanche; the Whymper Route on the Aiguille d'Argentière; the Cosmiques Arête of the Aiguille du Midi; the Normal Route, Contamine-Grisolle, and Chèré Couloir on the Mont Blanc du Tacul; and of course a choice of routes on Mont Blanc itself.

Each route features a detailed and comprehensive route description, a sketch map and a route summary detailing the start point, difficulty, timings, height gain, best time of year and the gear required. Beautifully illustrated with photos that show both the lie of the land and also the haunting beauty of the fabulous peaks of the Mont Blanc Range, this guide clearly indicates alpinism's continued popularity to climbers of all ages.

Simple topos and inspiring photos.
