The Mont Blanc Range is a new guidebook reflecting recent topographic and climate change. Beautifully illustrated with photos that show both the lie of the land, and also the haunting beauty of the fabulous peaks of the Mount Blanc range, indicating clearly the mainspring of alpinism’s continued popularity to climbers of all ages.

The guide shows all recent changed topographical conditions due to the steady glacial retreat created by climate change. All of the route descriptions are written in the aftermath of the very hot summer of 2003. It is aimed at alpinists seeking lower grade snow, ice and mixed climbs (grades F- to AD+).

The climbs selected are from across the Mont Blanc range and are easily accessible from well appointed mountain huts, useful telepheriques and mountain railways. There are 21 summits and 36 routes in the F- to AD+ range including:-
Aiguille du Tour
Aiguille du Chardonnet
Petite Aiguille Verte
Aiguille de Rochefort
Mont Blanc du Tacul
Mont Blanc
Domes de Neige
Practical information includes route description, topo diagrams & maps, descent advice, condition advice, equipment advice, expected times, GPS hut approaches, tourist offices, and weather reports.
