People & Cultures
The beginnings of mountain guiding in Chamonix, France, go back to the 18th century, when a Swiss first offered money to get an icy summit. This was the beginning of the long history of all those, who are connected to others with a rope: the mountain guides. Their history is also inextricably interwoven with the history of Alpinism. Recently, not only mountaineering, but also climate change has been a major issue.
