/ Scrambling routes in Pyrenees - guidebooks?
Does anyone know where we can get info on scrambles in the Pyrenees, and maybe Alps too?
Cicerone are always worth a look, whenever you're looking for general guides:
Might not be quite tailored enough for what you want, but they're fairly reliable.
Thanks. I'd ordered that just before posting. Apparently it is via much walking biased, with little info on climbs. But they are a good series, so should be useful anyway.
I find http://www.cicerone.co.uk/product/detail.cfm/book/420/title/the-pyrenees#.U0ElvsfkZuU from the same author very useful. Many more titles if you can read French &/or Spanish
That's true to a large extent, but there don't seem to be any English-language guides which do the job (this is for the Pyrenees, btw - haven't been to the Alps for ages).
What we've found the cicerone guide good for in the last couple of years is to mark the best approaches onto mountains, and then we've taken it from there. With a couple of kids in tow, it's been fine.
I don't know if Dan Bailey is still doing UKH, but THERE'S a man who knows his ridges. Might well be worth asking him.
