Description

The Aiguilles Rouges are the situated in Chamonix on the opposite side of the valley to the Mont Blanc massif. These reddish gneiss rock walls are at a lower altitude than the main Mont Blanc massif and are also more accessible via a series of ski lifts.

This guidebook covers the Brevent, Planpraz, Charlanon, Gliere, Index, Pouce, Floria, Gaspard, Crochues, Belvedere, Chamois, Perseverance, and Chezerys areas. It describes long multi-pitch routes that are often several hundred metres long that are a mixture of fully bolted routes through to pure traditional routes in the lower to midgrade range.

At the start of each main area there is a location map along with detailed access for each area. Each route is shown on a colour topo diagram, along with the French Alpine grade, minimum technical grade, length and the type of protection. This ranges from fully equipped (i.e. fully bolted), to partially equipped (pegs and bolted belays) to not equipped (a full traditional rack will be required).

Written by Michel Piola this guidebook is in English text throughout.
