Started by taking the lift from Les Houches and hiked a couple of hours (because the train was not working!) to the Nid D'Aigle Hut, where we spent the night. Next day continued on to the Gouter Hut, which turned out to be the hardest part of the climb! The Gouter ridge was very icy in sections and fairly crowded, some people were crawling up on all 4's! My biggest worry was that one of these people would slip and nudge me off the ridge...but luckily, all I got was a few crampons in my helmet. After spending the night in the "luxurious" Gouter Hut we made the summit in 3 hours and 45 minutes because there was a beautiful trail leading all the way to a fantastic summit!!

We started out climbing from the Cosmiques hut at 2AM in a steady rain. Once we hit Mount Maudit the rain turned to snow and we had some seriously powerful winds buffeting us all the way to the summit. By the time we reached the summit the snow had reached blizzard proportions. But once we started descending the Gouter Ridge the sun came out and we had blue skies for the remained of the descent. This was a great mountaineering experience and a fine end to my 2004 trip to the Alps.

From Tete Rousse, 8 hours to the top.
The coluoir was really dangerouse, snowy as in winter condiction, without any path detectable. It took us a lot of energy to arrive to the refuge Gouter. Then.....walking into the sky and into a dream. Unfortunalty foggy over Bosse.

We were driven back after the night from 10th to 11th of Sept. 2006 in Goutier-hut.
A thunderstorm raged all through the night bringing new snow.
We went down the next morning and will come back for sure :-)

I was invited to Mt Blanc by my friend ... And I just couldn't reject his invitation :-)
He really chose the best days for the tour as we had very nice weather. No problems at all!

An overnight climb from the Midi. Ate sardines at Col du Brenva. Summitted in dark at around 1.00 am. Lenticular cloud on top. Scary. Slept in stinky Vallot hut and left sardine tin in an annoying Frenchman's bag. Frostbit big toe. Climb in the evening and you will have the mountain to yourself!

BorsaFirst 4000m peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 27, 2004
When I was 14 it was my first visit of a mountain higher 4000m. We used a normal route from Cham, over Aig. du Midi to the summit. I was there with my older experienced friend and it was my start point to the world of high mountains. Since this ascent I've been many times in the Alps.

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.
