With its nearly 5,000 m of altitude, its glaciers, its walls of red granite, Mont Blanc is one of the most spectacular natural monuments of the Old Continent. Begun during the Age of Enlightenment with the first attempts to climb the 4,810 m peak, the climbing history of this mountain continued throughout the centuries. Today, the grand exploits of champions such as Christophe Profit, Michel Piola and Patrick Gabarrou are seen beside the lesser-known adventures of thousands of climbers coming from every corner of the earth. The story and pictures of the ascents of the greatest mountaineers of all times are an exciting encounter for the shrewdest reader-mountaineer, as well as for those approaching the magic of high altitudes for the first time. A description of the seven valleys crowning the giant and an illustrated chronology of over two centuries of undertakings on Mont Blanc complete the book.
