The Mont Blanc Massif 2005 : The Hundred Finest Routes

The Mont Blanc Massif 2005 : The Hundred Finest Routes


The Mont Blanc Massif is a true classic, an iconic mountaineering work of art. In it, Gaston Rebuffat - one of the finest mountaineers of his generation - presents his 100 greatest climbs in the Mont Blanc range, the finest and most accessible alpine climbing area in the world. This celebrated large-format guidebook remains the classic coffee-table guide to the greatest range in the Alps. As inspirational as it is informative, this book contains both beautiful photos and clear topos, thoroughly exciting writing and concise route directions. Its inspiring commentary has encouraged countless novice mountaineers and its wide spread of routes has sent numerous experienced alpinists out on new climbs. This latest edition contains many additional historical notes and photos and also advice on previous training areas that are no longer useful as a result of climate change. An alternative route is added to replace the celebrated Bonatti Pillar of the Dru that collapsed in June 2005. That the book remains as popular as ever, 20 years after the author's death, is a testament to Rebuffat and clear proof of the book's enduring relevance.
