Preparation

If your goals are set high, you have to prepare. Since our goal was the Mont Blanc, from the Refuge des Cosmiques, we spent a couple of days roaming the Vallee Blanche and Glacier du Geant, getting used to the thinner air and practicing our skills. The weather was perfect for it, so I took lots of pictures. Here are some of them.

The summit attempt

Because we weren't sure if the weather would hold, we started our summit attempt a day earlier than planned. See Freezing on Mont Blanc.
