markhallamMy favourite mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2009


I failed on the mountain 4 times before 1st of 5 subsequent successful ascents between 1984 and 2009. I have climbed Brenva face, traversed the mountain from Gouter to Midi - and finally solo'd the Gouter route in 2009. I would like to climb it a 6th time - this time via the Val Veni and Aiguille Grises route on the Italian side.

PetroTraverse 3 Monts to Gouter Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2007


Not sure about the exact date - I remember that I ran the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc then waited a few days because of foul weather and headed up to Aguille du Midi as soon as the skies were about to clear. Started with another guy whom I met on Col du Midi at 4 am but soon he withdrew because of high avalanche danger and problems with crevasse crossings. Hard slogging in fresh snow (nobody else on this route that day). Scared the shit out of myself when I broke a big cornice while climbing the Maudit. Got to the summit late in the afternoon and down to Refuge du Gouter at dusk. Hiked down all night and got to Les Houches about 6 am.
All in all 26 hours of a real solo adventure on a mountain that is told to be overcrowded.

First alpine experience, which was great! 2-day ascent with a stop-over at Gouter hut. Pretty good pace of 3.5 hours to summit from Gouter hut and back for the noon train.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010


After 3 times with no success due to bad weather, the fourth time was absolute fantastic. Blue sky and good conditions. In 6 hours from Tete Rousse, we left at 4.30 to the summit and back to the Gouter to stay the night and leave next morning back to the Nid d'aguile.

Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2009


Guided climb with 11 friends, alpine start from Cosmiques and made it all the way. Deteriorating weather conditions at the top, I think we basically climbed on the last day of the regular season because weather was bad for the rest of the week.. Very tiring, especially on the way down!

jackstratfordDouble ascent and great friends met  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2009


First ascent (solo) done on 18th of June in good weather. On the way down on the Col du Gouter I've two peaple who were about to go further up due to comming up weather breakdown and poor visibility on the Col... They decided to go to Vallot because were to tired to go to Refuge du Gouter. I've joined them just in case. Happened that the strom started and last for next 40 hours. After those to days of separation in Vallot rescue hut the weather came back. We were well prepared with food and rest of the gear and decided to go to the peak once again. The weater was even better form me this time. We did the peak and came down throgh Refuge du Gouter down to Chamonix.
Great time great people.
Thank you Mont Blanc. Ave
