rock climbing 
 
Chamonix granite is the stuff of dreams. There are endless cracks, rough slabs and compact walls. Routes vary from 3 pitches to 1000m, and grades vary start from VS or V. You can shiver up the Walker Spur or bake up the south face of the Midi.

The climbing is fine from early June to the end of September. Miles offers private guiding for rock jocks not just in Chamonix but across the Alps and in the southern sun.
