It is written by locally based British guide and photographer Hilary Sharp, a real expert on the range. With 50 outstanding walks and 4 multi-day treks, it covers both the French side around Chamonix and Italian side around Courmayeur. It is also illustrated with outstanding photographs by the author and sketch maps of the routes.

The guidebook assumes a certain degree of experience amongst it's readers. La Jonction is a hike unsuitable for unaccompanied novices in my view, the scrambling is OK if you know what you're doing - otherwise a definite no-no; same goes for hike from Col des Montets to Lac Blanc (albeit extremely rewarding and with magnificent vistas throughout)and the walk to Bellachat from Merlet also has some 'tricky moments' for the inexperienced - I saw some hikers rightly choose not to proceed. If in doubt, always turn back (I completed La Jonction on my third attempt)and give it another go when you're ready. What is easy for a highly experienced mountain guide is sadly not always the case for the rest of us - alas.
