Turned back 400 m from summit due to weather

Gave it a go with Kevin. Lifts were closed for the season, so we started hiking in Les Houches. Camped on Tete Rousse glacier one night. Made our summit push the next day. Lost the trail and a few hours on the Aguille du Gouter. Rested a bit at the Refuge du Gouter and then set off for the summit. Made it to our high point (400 m below summit) at 3 pm before being completed socked in by clouds. Retreated (very slowly) in the white out to the Gouter Hut and spent the night. Continued the retreat the next morning in a full-value blizzard. White-out conditions continued for our retreat down to below the Eagle's Nest. Finally made it back to the car about 9 pm (of day 3).

climbed on route to Mont Blanc  Sucess!

Climbed 2010/2011/2012
Crossing of colouir always scary. Found it more of an enjoyable climb leaving Tete Rousse at 12am when the rocks are sleeping and there are no queues up the rock face.

Unstable couloir  Sucess!

Day 1: Hiked up to Tete Rousse from Les Houches through the lovely forest and the soon to become standard trail they are currently securing. Still had enough time to go up to Gouter hut but opinion was divided about the Grand Couloir.

Day 2: Set out at 2 after a restless night and minor acclimatisation issues. The couloir had been unstable throughout the night and was also tricky when we tried to cross. Reached the new Gouter hut at dawn. Lost some gloves while fixing a loose crampon on Dome du Gouter (had spares luckily). Turned back at Vallot around 8 o'clock due to the ~50 km winds and fatigue. (Many people summited Mont Blanc but quite a few people turned back.) 2 Spaniards had a near-fatal fall on the loose rocks below Gouter on the Bionassay side. The couloir was again in full motion, but at least we could see what we were up against. Hiked down to Les Houches the same day and did some very enjoyable ferratas in the following days.
