Training for Mont Blanc  Sucess!

This was part of the training for Mont Blanc. The starting point was the Albert Premier hut. Good scrambling but crowded on the last part of the route, (August 15, 1992).

Normal route from French side  Sucess!

Warm up for Mt. Blanc. Super weather. Apparently the "normal" route had shifted to another valley than described in our book, so we had a fun climb across a big bergscrund

Normal route  Sucess!

Attempted the Table du Roc spur from the Albert Premier hut. Could not find the start of the route and there was too much stone fall at every possible route up to the crest of the spur. Since we had a enough time left we decided to do the normal route on the south summit. North summit normal route seemed a bit more interessting.

Ascended the mountian via the normal route as part of an Alpine skills course run by Plas y Brenin on behalf of the Jonathan Conville Trust. My first proper Alpine peak!

Nice easy mixed route  Sucess!

Set out on a beautiful sunny morning. By the time we got to the top the weather had closed in, visibility nil, and it started to snow, so no view from the summit. Still enjoyed it though.

East flank & North-east ridge  Sucess!

Started from the hut Albert I., ascended via Col Superieur, the east flank and the NE-ridge. Continued after descent to the Trient hut via the Plateau du Trient.

Climbed ths twice  Sucess!

Once in '99 via the Table du Roc (poor weather, went on wrong ridge but got to top in the end) with two nights in the hut and then again in August 2003 with Neil and Simon from Le Tour and back in a day during a short window in the atrocious weather. A good training day is to climb this in a day from the valley and run back down - a bit of everything- scramble, glacer travel, moraine bashing!

Route climbed: Couloir de la Breche  Sucess!

A nice couloir between south an north summit. In oppesite of Couloir le Table. Beginning and ending the most difficult. Nice acclimatisation

From Albert premier  Sucess!

Very nice route. Found the trek from the lift a little long and not too interesting..especially on the way down! Reached summit in well under 3 hours at a very comfortable pace.

Route climbed - Normal  Sucess!

My brother Gabi and I, as preparation of our ascend to Mont Blanc, climbed succesfully this nice Aiguille. At that moment of time it was our highest peak climbed ever. Nice route from Albert I hut and summit covered with fog. Our colleagues Luis and Fran joined us for the photo and celebration.
