WOW, what a shot! Illustrates atmosphere of the climb and crowd perfectly, ropes are great too. Oh yes, it is also at sunrise to spice things up even more. Btw, I think this should be Col du Maudit, key point of the route.

Yes Velebit, this pic shows how overcrowded and thus dangerous is sometimes the Aiguille du Midi route of the Mont Blanc

Yes Diego, it is sad that nowhere in the Alps one can't find peace. Mountains are amazing but crowds make you feel like being on the street in some major city not on some very special place. There is nothing we can do about that, only accept it or avoid it. For me mountains still have stronger appeal.
