nattfoddSolo 3M traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2009

nattfodd

Initially planned as a three persons effort, one got sick on the shoulder of Tacul (minor HACE) and we had to take her back to the Cosmiques hut. The other teammate stayed with her and I restarted alone. Slow progress and somewhat scary ice on the col du mont maudit, but finally summited at 11:20, completely alone.
Descent via the goûter, I barely caught the last TMB down after a 16h day.

A great day out.

After leaving my brother Gabriel in Geneve airport, in the way back to Chamonix, I decided to try Mont Blanc in "solo". I called the Gouter Hut to see if there was room and they confirmed there was. I arrived in the "nid d'aigle" at 2h30pm and reached Tete Rousse hut at 4pm and Gouter hut at 6pm on Aug. 20. Then departed for the adventure at 2h30am reaching summit at 6h30am with strong wind, cloudy and bloody cold. I was back in "nid d'aigle" train at 11h30am... A very thrilling experience, some tears in the summit and my 1rst Solo alpine climb.

Take a look to this trip report and let me know your comments

Met Adam and Graham via a SummitPost forum and climbed this mountain just last week. We hiked from the Valley to Eagle's Nest, then to Toute Rousse, then a big push up to the summit and back down to the train. Also joining us was Lord James, of Her Majesty's Royal Army. Awesome trip folks =)

Afternoon tram to Nid d'Aiguile. Climbed to Goûter Refuge, arriving at 20:30. Woke up at 2:00 and reached summit by 8:00. Back at to Goûter Refuge by 11:00. Left Goûter Refuge by 12:00 and back at Nid d'Aguile by 15:00. Our inability to sleep on the floor (I forgot my sleeping mat and the room was quite noisy) of the Goûter hut meant that we were really tired on the summit day and our rate of ascent was much slower than we could have otherwise maintained. Other than that, however, the whole trip was remarkably uneventful and the weather was perfect.

Dan P. and I enjoyed a great climb in perfect weather. Monday afternoon late, hike to Monzino Hut. Tuesday morning to Eccles Bivouac. Wednesday up the route to the summit, reached very late (sunset!). Hiked down to a cold bivy on the Brenva Col. Thursday, leisurely descent to Aiguille di Midi.

A party of three men (me Antonio and Juan Carlos)departed from Gouter Hut at 04:00 am and arrived to the top around 9:15 am.
Climbed with full moon. Once the daylight came there was a perfect clear blue sky and no wind at all during the whole ascent (and descent). We met a lot of people at the top. Even a guy was bringing a electronic keyboard and he was giving a fine concert (singing and playing) from the very top of the Alps. Unrepeatable!!

I went up the Aiguille du Midi on wednesday the 20th and climbed Mont Blanc du Tacul for acclimatisation and then stayed at the Cosmique hut for the night. The next morning, on thursday the 21st I left for my summit attempt, I climbed the Mont Blanc du Tacul first, and after summitting I climbed Mont Maudit, and after summitting I climbed on to the col de la Brenva and Mur de la Cote and eventually summitted Mont Blanc. I took the same route back, and stayed a final night at the Cosmique hut and went back down to the valley the next morning, on friday the 22nd, via the Aiguille du Midi.

Started from Aiguille du Midi at 2100 hours. Climbed half way up Tacul, but then had to return since a climber got ill. Restarted at 2330. Reached the top around 7. Returned to Aiguille du Midi. Totally crowded on the way back and we had to wait more than an hour getting down Mt. Maudit. Back at Midi around 14. Dead tired but great trip!
