Rodellar Sport Climbing Guidebook

Rodellar Sport Climbing Guidebook

Rodellar is a famous sport climbing area, well known for its huge overhangs and caves with lots of big tufas.  These steep well-bolted routes generally start around F6b, with the majority of the routes in F7a to F9a grade range.  The climbing style is powerful and athletic requiring plenty of stamina, with many of the routes finding their way out of overhanging caves, arches, roofs, tufas and pinnacles.   Short pitches of 10m to 15m do exist, but the majority of the routes are between 25m to 35m long, and there are even some 40m to 50m monster routes as well.

The new definitive Rodellar Sport Climbing Guidebook describes 44 different sectors and covers many 100’s of routes.  All the routes are shown on colour photo-topos and the guidebook is written in Spanish and English text throughout.

Spring and autumn are the optimum times to visit Rodellar to climb.  All the sectors are split into small areas either side of the gorge, meaning it is possible to climb in the sun or shade depending upon the time of day.

Crag Climbs in Chamonix Guidebook

Crag Climbs in Chamonix Guidebook

The months of July, August and September are a great time to visit Chamonix to go rock climbing.  As well as the high mountains, there are many lower crags scattered along the Chamonix Valley that provide a mixture of bouldering, single pitch and multi-pitch sport routes.  The type of rock is a mixture between granular gneiss and granite, with routes across a wide range of grades. These crags are easily accessible at various altitudes from a few hundred metres to over 2,000m giving plenty of choice depending on how hot it is or if the higher peaks are not in condition.

The Crag Climbs in Chamonix Guidebook covers these crags in the lower Chamonix Valley, describing 31 separate sport climbing areas, plus 4 bouldering areas.  Included are crags from the village of Le Fayet in the west, along the valley past Chamonix and Argentiere, to the Swiss border.  This is also one of a few guidebooks detailing the bouldering in this area and includes Les Bossons, and Le Col des Montets.

This 9th edition of this excellent guidebook was published in June 2019, and the guidebook is in English text throughout.
