Topic - Mont Blanc, Where to start?

Alpine-Fella - on 22 Apr 2014
Hi everyone.

I would like to climb Mont Blanc this summer but I have only been climbing on and off for the last year and a bit. I would say very I'm fit compared to most, I run and race mountain bikes all the time.

I have a few quick questions I'm hoping someone might be able to help with:

1)
I hear the climb is not very technical ( depending on the route you take )Would I need to practice using crampons ? anything else to learn? Also where to learn?

2)
I cant afford to pay an expensive guide to take me up, so where could I find other people that might be interested in climbing with me?

Thanks for you help
