Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2011


One week in the alps with nary a day under the sun. Managed to get on top of the big white mountain. Spent a day at tete rousse waiting out a fresh dump. Only passed about 5 people in all on summit day. Definitely encountered more mountain goats than people!

Nice climb after an unsuccesful first attempt the day before. Third group on the summit, so not yet too crowded :)

Hard day at the office

At sunraise was visiblity down to less than 1m - then the storm came and everything was clear, crystal freezing clear.

We meet a lot of teams heading down while still heading up - they all said "impossible" - but we felt strong and continued.

Perfect windy summit - perfect view - only one other team on the summit with us.

Down to cosmique hutte for steaming meal :)

Perfect long day with James & Edward

This was a wild adventure that late in the season on the Aretes Boissons/Dome Du Gouter route. A long story, but basically, bad partner, found a new partner on the mountain who is now a great friend, and we summited on a day when everyone else turned around due to high winds. It was awesome!

Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2010


I planned to climb this mountain for 2 years after a year of training and focus I did it! It was a good climb but if I did it again I'd do it from the Aiguille du Midi. Too many people on the Gouter Route and quite a few inexperienced unprepared climbers as well.

Very nice and easy route with some nice "climbing" on ice to get to the Col Maudit. Bugger we summited in clouds with a 10m view. I'll be back...

markhallamMy favourite mountain  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 18, 2009


I failed on the mountain 4 times before 1st of 5 subsequent successful ascents between 1984 and 2009. I have climbed Brenva face, traversed the mountain from Gouter to Midi - and finally solo'd the Gouter route in 2009. I would like to climb it a 6th time - this time via the Val Veni and Aiguille Grises route on the Italian side.

PetroTraverse 3 Monts to Gouter Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2007


Not sure about the exact date - I remember that I ran the Ultra Trail Mont Blanc then waited a few days because of foul weather and headed up to Aguille du Midi as soon as the skies were about to clear. Started with another guy whom I met on Col du Midi at 4 am but soon he withdrew because of high avalanche danger and problems with crevasse crossings. Hard slogging in fresh snow (nobody else on this route that day). Scared the shit out of myself when I broke a big cornice while climbing the Maudit. Got to the summit late in the afternoon and down to Refuge du Gouter at dusk. Hiked down all night and got to Les Houches about 6 am.
All in all 26 hours of a real solo adventure on a mountain that is told to be overcrowded.

First alpine experience, which was great! 2-day ascent with a stop-over at Gouter hut. Pretty good pace of 3.5 hours to summit from Gouter hut and back for the noon train.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2010


After 3 times with no success due to bad weather, the fourth time was absolute fantastic. Blue sky and good conditions. In 6 hours from Tete Rousse, we left at 4.30 to the summit and back to the Gouter to stay the night and leave next morning back to the Nid d'aguile.
