Left Tete Rousse hut at 7:30am (Swiss guides like to have a good nights sleep), cuppa at Gouter hut 9:30am, summited at 2pm ish. Weather perfect. Lay in sun for forty minutes at summit. Only 2 other people there. Fantastic.

The normal route from the Refuge Aiguille de Gouter. Left the hut at 3.45a.m. and reached the summit at 7a.m.
The weather was perfect. As I came onto the summit I met the sun coming up from the other direction. Perfect!

One of my greatest tours! We made the traverse from Refuge Cosmique to Mont Blanc. Then we crossed to Mont Blanc de Courmayeur and after descending the Bosses ridge we also took Dome de Goûter. What a view! No higher mountain around!

We reached the peak from the normal route in clean but very windy weather ( 90 km/h ) . Finally both of us stood on the top of Alps absolutely alone for some minutes. Fantastic feeling.

My first 4000m peak. My first climb actually. Did it with my brother and two friends.

Because we were very unexperienced the roundtrip from Plan de Midi to Nid d'Agille took 15 hours. Had to carry all our equipment (from a bivi on the col) over the summit.

An excellent but long route.

We started at 2 in the morning. The weather was excellent, no winds at all. Took us 5 hours to reach the summit. Had to cope with very big crowd. This was my very best mountaineering experience ever since.

Absolutely quiet and warm weather, not too crowded, generally a nice climb. The only bad part was the small icy couloir on Mont Maudit, it was full of rude and impatient guides, pulling their horrified clients over everybody on the fixed ropes. The snow cover was in good condition until noon.

After a long "ticky-tacka" through the white and infinite slopes and domes, my brother Gabi and I arrived at the summit of Mont Blanc, our emotions were the highest. It was 8h30am and we have started from Tête Rousse hut at 1h30am. 5 mins later our friends Luis and Fran joined us. Weather was perfect except a cold & windy start. We were back in Tete Rousse at 13h30pm and then Chamonix in the afternoon. Endurance, motivation and preparation were key in the success. We dedicate this exciting ascent to my father Suso who has been always the best source of inspiration.

Date Climbed: Jun 5, 2006


We left at 2.00 o'clock in the morning the refuge Grand Mulets at 3.100m and tried to climb the Mont Blanc via the "new" Grand Mulets route on skies as the snow conditions in June were still perfect. The old Grand Mulets route passed below the dangerous crevasses so that you were exposed to the ice fall quite a long time when going up, but on this new route, they nowadays advise, you pass the crevasses from above so that you are not exposed at all. However this route is steeper and we had to put our crampons on half way because the ridge became to icy as well. The nice thing of this route is that you are straight above Chamonix and that the lights in the Valley and even towards Geneva are great and that it is a quiet route as well! We were only with 8 persons when we left the Grand Mulets refuge and we did not see any other person that day at all.
Unfortunately for us it was -10c with a strong northerly wind of approximately 50km/h and that in combination of being exposed to the wind for a few hours on the steep ridge, we were almost frozen when we arrived at the Vallot bivouac at 4.263m after 5 hours climbing. After an hour trying to get warm again we decided to ski down the Mont Blanc all the way back to the Plan de l' Aquille which took us 1 hour including a long break. It is a pity that we could not make it to the summit, especially if you ski down from the Vallot bivouac and you are out of the wind and look back to the Mont Blanc which is under a perfect blue sky with no signs of strong cold winds at all.......

Date Climbed: Jul 17, 1996


It was for me the first + 4000mtr climb so it was very special, we did one week of training in the ecrin and vanoise with a climb to the Mont Pourri. After that we wend for a week climb in the Mont Blanc Massive with a guide from Peisey Nancroix to do different climbs there including Mont Blanc over the shoulder of MB du Tacul and the shoulder of Mont Maudit. We went up to the refuge des Cosmic and decided to climb the next day Mont Blanc because of the perfect weather. Next day we left at 2 am in cold but calm weather to reach the summit at 7:30. It was a long and nice route, the same way back was not very pleasing but had to do with the program.
