This is a selective guidebook describing 60 routes on the Mont Blanc Massif and the Aiguilles Rouges Massif in the Chamonix Valley. These routes range from F4 to F6a+, and are enjoyable routes with easy access and descents.
The selected 60 routes are on 40 summits in 17 areas and include many established classic routes. These routes cover a variety of rock (gneiss and granite), climbing styles (slabs, corners and steep walls), and protection (bolts, pegs and natural gear such as nuts and cams). All the routes described can be climbed in one day, generally carrying only a very small rucksack.
Most routes are described across 2 pages and include, a brief description, type of gear required, approach information, descent information, colour photo topo, and a hand drawn line topo.
