he Hoggar massif, located south of the Algerian Sahara, is home to peaks, domes and pinnacles that make this place a fun and magical climbing area. This topo-guide precisely lists the routes traveled over seventy years of vertical exploration, with supporting technical descriptions and access conditions. Furthermore, practical information of a more general nature, relating to the country, the desert or the local culture, allows climbers to adapt to the place; in addition, the account of the experiences lived by the author are often rich in teaching. Enamelled with numerous sketches and photos, this book is the fruit of a dream which should inspire many others. Pictograms understandable in all languages indicate to climbers the technical information necessary for climbing.
