This summer we will be publishing a new guidebook to the Chamonix area of France (and a bit of Italy). This is proving to be an inspiring guidebook to work on and is a classic example of Rockfax’s maxim to produce the guidebook that we as climbers would want to use.
This book will contain everything – valley cragging, granite rock routes, mixed faces and ridges and long multi-day mountain routes including Mont Blanc – more information on what is included here.
The book is being written in the main by Charlie Boscoe with assistance from Jack Geldard and we are aiming at releasing the App version in July this summer and book in August – publication update here.
The routes are described using large photo-topos in combination with full text descriptions, approach information, crag and route symbols and detailed maps. It is illustrated with some stunning action photographs from the likes of Ben Tibbetts, John Griffiths, Calum Muskett, the authors and others.
Large maps have been drawn up which show detailed coverage of the climbing peaks, cols and ridges, with approaches, huts, bivis and lifts all marked.
