A guidebook aimed at alpinists seeking lower grade snow, ice and mixed climbs (F to AD+, with climbs of D) and reflecting all recent changed topographical conditions due to the steady glacial and snowfield retreat created by climate change.The climbs are selected from across the range and are easily accessible from well appointed mountain huts and useful telepheriques and mountain railways. This book is beautifully illustrated with photos that show both the detail of the mountain or approach and also the haunting beauty of the fabulous peaks of the Mont Blanc Range - including clearly the mainspring of alpinism's continued popularity to climbers of all ages.
