comment Recommended ascents for the improving mountaineer
@Wills I'm totally wit you. I Also have lots of those famous mountains on my list that I would like to get by my own means and am happy that there is the possibility to do so! Nonetheless, having no access restrictions means that there are people on the mountains that have obviously no clue about the dangers they are handling. I have seen lots of them just some weeks ago on the Monte Rosa.

I'd question two of your statements: for everathing I know, there's no requirement by law to have a guide to climb Mont Blanc, but basically everyone can try it (might be one reason why there are so many people dying – there are too many unexperienced people). And secondly, I can't imagine any definition of "alpine" under which it would be advised to Mont Blanc as their first such ascent. There are many alpine mountains that are easier to reach and less crowded.
