Mont Blanc on Thursday....







We've had a good few weeks in Chamonix with lots of personal high altitude rock and mixed alpine routes being climbed as well as the complete traverse of the north ridge of Mont Buet with Lorna and Gerry on our Trek and Climb Mont Blanc course. Gerry and Lorna also completed a traverse of the Domes du Miage with Jonathan and then despite mixed weather and high winds at 4,000 metres Jonathan and Gerry successsfully summited Mont Blanc during a 24 hour good weather window on Thursday before thunder storms and lots of fresh snow arrived on Friday / Saturday catching many climbers out...
We're now heading off to Ailefroide and then later Bregalia for some long alpine multi-pitch rock climbing before returning to Chamonix in late August / September.
