I climbed the mountain severall times by different routes, but this is the one time I reached the actual summit. This time we climbed during the high-season wich was noticable by the very deep tracks you had to follow.

A success within a failure. Set off from the Cosmiques Hut at 4am with Rich Cross, but didn't feel good. This should have been the start of the Trois Blancs but only did Tacul and returned to the Cosmique exhausted. Next day discovered I've got two broken ribs from a fall on Aiguille Du Moine, no wonder I was struggling!

We left early in the morning reached the summit from the Aiguille du Midi in under 2 hours, very windy on the shoulder. With no time to eat on the summit and a fierce storm coming from Italy we hurried back down. Reached Aiguille du Midi before 12 PM, lightning started shortly thereafter. First time climbing the Tacul, relatively easy, part of a preparation for the Mont Blanc.

Cut a 3 summit trip short and just topped out on Tucal. The guy with me was sick from the night before in the Col du Midi and we had been climbing for 3 days straight. The weather was coming in and we knew we were going to slow to do it in one push. Great sunrise coming down Tucal though.

Climbed it in great weather, but too late in the day and made for postholing (taught me a lesson though)

Climbed the Tacul as an acclimitisation sortie before attempting Mont Blanc. A bit of a slog up the face but the Bergshrund made life quite interesting!

On reaching the summit the wind was fierce and cold but the views were fantastic. My first 4000er!

Climbed the route in reasonable conditions, one pitch at 60 degrees, didn't summit though only scrambling left to summit.
