Cosmique Ridge
The end of the Cosmique Ridge route with Mt. Blanc as the backdrop. What a view! Wish I had looked at it...was too busy fussing with my feet so I wouldn't accidentally tumble out of this majestic photo!

look at the view. Who needs the view if there is a chance of slipping! I have the same problem. When I'm standing next to a cliff I have to look down, otherwise I could loose my balance.
Another photo from your great adventures, and thank you for sharing them, Sylva.

Yes, it's a super route, I've done it a few times just to acclimatize. And, I always get a kick out of surprising all the tourists at the lookout by hopping over the railing!

You are so right and good eye! Yes, it snowed for a week just before I got there. They got over 1 meter of snow, which pretty much squashed all my planned climbs. But, no complaints...just climbed other stuff, there's plenty there!

What a beautiful picture!! When was it taken? It's all in there! I dreamed of the Trois-Mont-Blanc-traverse but could not fit it in this year because of the weather!Congratulations!

Hi Andre
Thanks so much! It was taken September 5th. Too bad about the terrible weather for your trip. Yes, they had 1.5 meters of snow just before I arrived, that's why I did this ridge, it was one of the few climbs possible.

Yes conditions were fickle - Aig du Tour was OK day before you took the picture and Gran Paradiso the day after. But conditions stopped us going for the Domes de Miage & Gonella route on Mont Blanc...
And agreed, great picture of my favourite mountain

Hi Mark
You managed to squeeze in some great climbs! I did think though that everything just looked so beautiful with all that fresh snow.
