Can anyone recommend a good guide for ice climbing in Cogne? I'm sure I've seen one in the past for the area, but can't remember it.
Tourist information dishes out a map with the icefalls and their grades on it.
des Autour du Mont Blanc 2 its in french though
but its not really that great a guide book to actually use. the diagrams and descriptions are often poor to non existent and it doesn't have much info or maps for each area. Good book for identifying the best (mostly hard) euroice climbs are.
