Great article.

Another location I'd really recommend is the Alpes Maritimes (just N or Nice, or W of Cuneo). Pretty much everything can be done in a day from the roadhead, and is suitable for a HS - E1 climber. No glaciers either...

Excellent article. 

Feel I wouldn't be doing my due diligence as a trustee if I didn't also mention that if cost is a barrier for you, The Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust offer subsidised Alpine Mountaineering Courses where we cover 50% of the course cost. If you're not sure how to make a start in alpine climbing, it's a great entry point for those aged 18-30. And applications are currently open for our 2023 courses... https://www.jcmt.org.uk/courses
