Topic - alpine route ideas

French Erick - on 26 Sep 2012
Never done any proper alpine routes, despite coming from the Alps.
Up to now, I was never really interested beyond the usual "I wonder" moment.
I now feel that I need to give it a go before I never do it and regret it.

I'm fairly competent and fit (check my profile) but haven't got the slightest idea about routes unless they are mega famous- and likely a bit big for starters (supercouloir and colton-mac GJ).

What would you recommend as a tick list? I like mixed and could be alright on ice with more mileage. I have not done any aid but I'm ready to learn. Finally, I am OK on rock.

I'll ask some of my regular partners who have done some but thought I would inquire with the collective mind of UKC to see what they thought and to see what sort of slating I could get.

I first posted this by mistake in the winter forum.
