Broken chossy rock, lots of rock fall, scorching heat, my partner ended up getting into an even harder route and we descended horrible rappels halfway through the route.

My and my friend Mark (HOL) spent two nights in our tent on the Col du Midi. Our intention was to do the Trois Monts traverse but unfortunately there was way too much snow. All tracks were covered in fresh snow. On our third and final day we launched a summit bid but turned around at around 4.000m. The snow was far too mushy and soft, we were too late and there was a risk of avalanche. Better return to camp.

Came from Chere Couloir. O climbing in the shadow of the mountain is always cold!

DalianCold  Sucess!


I summited it once with a friend ( Claude ), another time by myself. Another time I came down by helicopter (hypothermia) Taken down to the hospital in Chamonix. It happened on my birthday (2007).
Many times I climbed to the col of Mont Blanc du Tacul alone or with friends, either as a final destination or on the way to Mont Maudit or/and Mont Blanc. Years when I climbed it successfully is 2007 (same as when I got in trouble).

Acclimatisation climb for the Matterhorn. A straightforward slog although large crevasses and avalanche prone.

il.rocciatoreRoute Climbed: Contamine - Grisolle Date Climbed: june 2013  Sucess!


After waiting years for good conditions and a chance to climb the Contamine - Grisolle, it finally happened in early june 2013. The first telepherique brought us from Chamonix to the Aiguille du Midi and 1 hour (and a small race) later we were the second party to attack the route. Perfect snow conditions in the lower part, a little bit icy in the higher part below the goulotte.

Although several parties (guides, clients and independent parties) ended up together climbing the goulotte, there was a nice and relaxed atmosphere, as it should be.

Continued to the summit of Mont Blanc du Tacul where we arrived at 12 o'clock. Back in Chamonix at 4o'clock. Very nice trip!

ZeroFCTrois Mont Traverse
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2012
Free solo ascent made on the morning of Sept. 7th. From speaking to the staff at the Refuges Des Cosmiques, no one had summited this route in nearly 2 weeks due to a high avalanche risk advisory in effect and new crevice formations which were deemed difficult to spot because of fresh snow.

Left the refuge slightly before 2AM and summited the Tacul while still dark. A few difficult to spot crevices but nothing too bad.
