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.
