If you haven’t sorted out your summer holiday then look no further….
We have 7 people definitely going (Pete Corrigan, Paul Fairburn, Shirley Emptage, Andy Barton, Hanne Barton, Dave Hunter, Jon Lury) and another 4 potentials. I get the impression that most people would like to do “a bit of everything” including walking, biking, rock, classical alpinism, VF, eating a lot, lying in the sun, etc, if the opportunity arises.

Guidebooks: For the walking the cicerone walking guide by Hilary Sharp has got lots of superb walks starting more-or-less from the campsite. For the rock and alpinism the recent rockfax guidebook is great and has fantastic photos, and there is climbing near the campsite. For easy alpinism there is a lovely book called “Mont Blanc – easy ascents and glacier hikes”. IGN 1/25000 map 3630 Chamonix covers pretty much everything we need.
