Chamonix is the most famous climbing area in Europe. Nowhere else has as much quality rock, spectacular peaks and varied mountaineering history. For most climbers, a trip to Chamonix is an integral part of their climbing and mountaineering career.

This new edition of the incredibly successful 2016 Rockfax book covers everything you need – perfect granite rock routes, magnificent long ridges, intimidating north faces and some valley sport climbing for the ‘rest days’.
