New Rockfax Guidebook to Chamonix Product News

Rockfax Chamonix guidebook montage, 98 kb

Chamonix is the most famous climbing area in Europe. Nowhere else has as much quality rock, spectacular peaks and varied mountaineering history.

For most climbers a trip to Chamonix is an integral part of their climbing and mountaineering career. When there you want to try everything; perfect granite rock routes, magnificent long ridges, intimidating north faces and then also have some valley sport climbing for the ‘rest days’. Or maybe you just want to tick Mont Blanc.

For Rockfax this is one of our most exciting challenges yet. Doing justice to this vast area with it many iconic climbs and mountain routes and great variety of climbing is no small task.

This summer, for the first time ever, all this is going to be available in a single publication from Rockfax with hundreds of routes ranging from short sport ticks to the best multi-day adventures. It is illustrated with some amazing photo-topos, superb maps and with excellent detailed descriptions.

The book is due to go to the printers in June so should be ready in July for this summer's season - THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL!
