Topic - beginner stuff in alps

dremelmaster - on 29 Jul 2013
Hi, I am planning a last minute trip to the alps in a few days. I am a complete novice when it comes to hills although I have toproped in the peak district and climbed indoors. I am reasonably fit. I am interested more in mountaineering and I need to learn the basics but also challenging at the same time.

It is a bit of a last minute thing and I have a 1000 give or take. i have lots of gear clothing/boots/iceaxe/crampons but never used any of it.

Can anyone recommend a resort/course? or should i just rock up in chamonix or the like and figure it out from there? i am a loner and have no climbing friends :-(

thanks
