Out of 8 days in the alps, the only two weather days were our summit days, so we made it Vallot hut and turned around about 1,400 from the summit. Hope to go back.

markhallamMy 6th ascent...   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2013


Climbed this time via the 'Italian' normal route, which I have had on my 'to-do' list for a long time.

This ascent ticked off 2 other 'to-do's' - a bivvy on the summit plus crossing to Mont Blanc de Courmeyeur.

The night at the top of Europe was complicated by a thunderstorm - more to follow in the planned trip report!

rggMy second time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2013


Mark and I climbed the Italian normal route and bivvied (almost) on the summit. Next morning we made a foray to Mont Blanc de Courmayeur before descending the 3 monts route, which is how I had climbed it the first time, four years ago. Although the Italian route is much longer, technically I found it easier than the 3 monts.

highpointaMonte Bianco from the Italian side  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2012
Avoided the masses and the crowded Gouter hut by chosing the so-called Pope route via Gonella hut which hosted only 15 other guests that day. Slept very well, then summited in perfect weather and descended to Chamonix.

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.

olygtx06via Dôme du Goûter
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.
