Permit lottery list? Permit lottery list?

Does anyone maintain a list online of summits that require a permit which may only be obtained via lottery, i.e., permits for summits like Whitney and Mt. St. Helens, that can be difficult to get? That would be a very useful database!

Guide book - Mont Blanc massif

Hello guys,

I need advice: I would like with my partner to start to climb in Mont Blanc massif (France) - we have experiences with winter climbing from our country.
We found book - guide : "Rebuffat's 100 Finest Routes in the Mont Blanc Massif".
My question is: Is some better guide book for "beginers" like this? If yes, please recommend it me.
Thank you for opinions.

Interesting goings on happening on Everest.

KATHMANDU: The government issued a directive last month to extend by five years all group permits that were issued to Mt Everest expeditions during the last spring season. This effectively means that the same members of the expedition will have to scale Mt Everest together within the next five years. If even one member of an expedition scales the mountain, permits of others will be cancelled.
