Mont Blanc, solo.

13-15 September 2007.

This is my first Alpine experience. I was climbing solo, without guide and without rope. Start (13.09.2007) from Tete Rousse at 7:00, Gouter hut at 10:00, Vallot Hut in 15:00 but i was very tired for continue. So, i spent night in Vallot, alone. and next morning (14.09.2007) i start from Vallot at 8:00 and reach the summit at 11:00. Bad weather above 4300, strong wind and snow dust ... I was alone on the summit and only eight people was summited before me.
I dont saw any new climbers all way down to Gouter hut.

On descent: 14:00 Gouter Hut, 16:00 Grand Couloir (shooting gallery as is, but i do it), 16:30 Tete Rousse.
