Écrins East, Cerces, Queyras Volume 1 - Snow and Mixed Climbs

A total of 344 mountaineering and ski mountaineering routes in the eastern part of the Écrins. A splendid colour photo topo guide.
The Écrins, also known as the Dauphiné is very popular with British alpinists and this splendid colour photo topo guide should be too.
From easy snow routes to mixed climbs, couloirs and gullies, Sébastien Constant provides the most extensive overview of mountaineering routes in the Écrins (East), Cerces and Queyras yet published, unearthing forgotten gems and re-describing the area’s great classics.
The eastern part of the Écrins covers: Les Bans, the Pelvoux, the Ailefroide, the Barre des Écrins, Roche Faurio, Les Agneaux, the Dômes de Monêtier, the Têtes Sainte-Marguerite, the Combeynot, and Chamoissière. (The western area, from the Meije to the Sirac, will be covered in Volume 2.)
A total of 344 mountaineering and ski mountaineering routes, giving full details of the approach, ascent and descent for each. It includes 55 normal routes, 48 new routes, 189 photo-diagrams, 32 detailed maps, 188 photos, 60 previously unpublished topos and short essays by skiers and mountaineers. Beware that many, but not all, of the ski mountaineerring routes are what would be termed extreme ski-ing. Printed in full colour using vegetable inks on chlorine-free paper (PEFC accredited).
