Route Climbed: The traverse of Mont Blanc via Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit Date Climbed: July, Aug 1997, 98
Misleading climb, similar to Denali but much shorter! Weather can change quickly, can be very crowded with climbers of various skill levels. Beautiful sunrise views and strong sense of accomplishment upon the summit and return.
Route Climbed: Trois Monts (Tacul, Maudit, Mont Blanc) Date Climbed: July 25, 1999
Successful on the second try - perfect weather (this time). We climbed via the Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mont Maudit, down via les Grand Mulets. Grandiose views but crowded. No serious difficulties except a serac to pass under.
Route Climbed: Traverse: gouter route up, 2 montblanc route down Date Climbed: 25 july 1997
Crowded but beautiful, easy but dangerous. Don't underestimate this mountain!
Many people get killed here as it is said to be so 'easy' . Take your time, be aware of the weather and be prepared for bad times. When descending the 3 montblancs route (bvery beautiful, quiet but also verytiring), know how th use your crampons and rope. The day we descended 4 people died there as they did not think it was steep enough to use a running belay...
