We started out climbing from the Cosmiques hut at 2AM and finally made it to the summit with cold by clear weather. The climb was crowded and long but the views were beautiful.

This is my first Alpine experience. I was climbing solo, without guide and without rope. Start from Tete Rousse at 7:00, Gouter hut at 10:00, Vallot Hut in 15:00 but i was very tired for continue. So, i slept in Vallot, alone. and next morning i start from Vallot at 8:00 and reach the summit at 11:00. Bad weather above 4300, strong wind and snow dust ...

After a sudden change in weather a minor badweather front stroke the mountain during the night so the 02AM wake up call was called off. However, eventually the heavy winds diminished and at breakfast some parties made ready for summit attempt at 0900AM. I soloed and reached the summit at 1215PM. I was all alone over the Bosse-ridges. What a feeling! After that rather late summit, I had a descent of 3.800 altitude meters all the way down to Les Houches. (Tramway du MB out of order due rockfall.)

No problem really to do it unroped all the way to the summit. There was only one open crevasse well above the Vallot hut which could be overcome with a big step. The weather was outstanding. Feeling really lucky.

Perfect weather. The amount of snow on the mountain made the ascent spectacular, especially the awkward ascent of the Grand Couloir. The route via Mont Maudit was inaccessible due to the amount of snow.

Started hiking from town in beautiful weather. When we got up to the col the next day, we were in whiteout conditions and terrible winds that turned us around. No worries, I don't mind taking another trip there to try again!

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!

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.
