Hey, there!

Is there such a thing as a comprehensive list of must-do mountaineering routes in the Alps by difficulty rating: beginner, intermediate, advanced, expert?

What routes are universally considered classics/have outstanding quality and impressive beauty?

In reply to IvanLi:

Rebuffat's 100 finest routes in the Mont Blanc Massif is a good starting point.

Plus the other volumes in the same series to other areas (Valais, Oberland, Ecrins etc), although I don't think any of the others were ever translated into English

And Rebuffat's classic has now been updated by Philippe Batoux
