Nearing Mont Blanc summit
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
At this point world appears like from an airplane, valleys are almost 4km lower while mighty alpine peaks that yesterday towered above you simply diminished. There is no doubt whose summit ridge this is. As you gasp rare air and every leg weights a ton, you know that soon you’ll be standing on top of King of the Alps, Mont Blanc (4807m). Gouter route, August 2002.
