Climbed in 2005 and 2012. Both via Gouter Route. Awesome feeling to get to the top both times. Second time we hit the summit just as the sun came up over the Eastern Alps. Wrap up warm kids

ZeroFCTrois Mont Traverse  Sucess!
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.

Close to 100 climbers at the refuge, 8 of us set out and 6 (4 person team and two soloists) of us made it to the summit.

It took nearly 12 hours to summit(2pm) - there was no trail after Mont Blanc du Tacul and we took a vertical ice climb through Mt. Maudit. I took another 12 hours going down the Gouter route till I arrived in the Chamonix Valley (2am) in one giant 24 hour full traverse effort.

My first big trip - very fulfilling! Trained like hell for it (from nothing) for a few months and found it relatively easy.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011
The first day we slept at refuge de Tête Rousse. The second day we summited and went back to refuge de Tête Rousse for a second night. We caught a weather window and the conditions were very good. The Grand Couloir is dangerous. We got a late start, but that meant that we had the summit to ourselves for a few minutes. It took us about eight hours from refuge de Tête Rousse to the summit, with long breaks at refuge du Goûter and refuge Vallot. I got a great picture of the summit with clouds over it while on the Dôme du Goûter.

Solo'd up the Gouter Route. 60-70 mph winds blasting from the Gouter Hut all the way to the summit. I had the rare chance to stand on the summit alone.

Climb via Gouter route. Extremely strong winds and dark clouds blowing in towards the morning. Turned around at Vallot around 7 am. Still very happy! Beautiful sunrise and amazing days on the mountain.

Nice climb. Great view. The descent to the Gouter Couloir have to pay attention. At the time we just say right up, we saw and heard huge rocks fall down. Rocks greater than yourself.

Always be alert at the Gouter Couloir area and pass him quickly.

Stayed in a tent.

johan10 year's anniversery climb!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2011


10 year´s successful anniversery climb!

A lot of new fresh snow made it rather easy and we were not so exposed as last time on the petit bosses.

Wonderful weather on the summit day but snowing lightly during the ascent the day before and during the night. Not many people due to the bad weather on the assent but more coming up on the descent.

Thanks goes to my Spanish companions for a very nice trip!
