Topic - Recommended guide book for the alps +

the ant hill mob - on 05 Jan 2013
Hi,

Planning on a summer trip to the alps for a month or so, will be looking for a guide book with preferably lower grades f-ad. Will be living out the back of the van, but chamonix will be the initial destination, but more than willing to travel to other locations for routes.

Also might be looking at some sport/trad climbing routes on days off. Any recommendations for a guide book for this too. looking at lowish grades again, around 4-6 sport, vs trad.

Finally will want to practice skills such as crampon use and ice axe recoveries etc, on a safe enough glacier, as 2 of the group have no experience on snow and ice. so any recommendations?

Thanks,

Ant
