Trekking in the Alps


A large format guidebook edited by Cicerone Press,
in which I have written these 3 treks –

Almost all treks in the book have their own dedicated Cicerone guidebook. 

As I don't stock this book you can buy it directly from the Cicerone website from this link.

This is the only comprehensive snowshoe guidebook

and important safety details, such as avalanche
awareness and safe travel on glaciers, with a full
explanation of crevasse rescue. 

Barberine Gietroz climbing guide


Written by Jon - it's the definitve guide to all the crags of this small but major area, right above the Swiss French frontier, just outside Vallorcine. This area has some of the best routes in the region, both single and multi pitch. 

Almost year-round climbing - Gietroz enjoys a microclimate and it is often warm and dry enough to climb here when other venues in the Chamonix valley are snowy and cold.
