Cosmique Ridge

The end of the Cosmique Ridge route with Mt. Blanc as the backdrop. What a view! Wish I had looked at it...was too busy fussing with my feet so I wouldn't accidentally tumble out of this majestic photo!

Glad you didn't...

look at the view. Who needs the view if there is a chance of slipping! I have the same problem. When I'm standing next to a cliff I have to look down, otherwise I could loose my balance.
Another photo from your great adventures, and thank you for sharing them, Sylva.

Great Route

Did it a couple of seasons ago on the way back from doing the Tacul, a really nice way to the cable station, nice photo :)

Re: Great Route

Yes, it's a super route, I've done it a few times just to acclimatize. And, I always get a kick out of surprising all the tourists at the lookout by hopping over the railing!

a snow storm ? There are no traces on Mont Blanc du Tacul :)

Re: After

You are so right and good eye! Yes, it snowed for a week just before I got there. They got over 1 meter of snow, which pretty much squashed all my planned climbs. But, no complaints...just climbed other stuff, there's plenty there!

What a beautiful picture!! When was it taken? It's all in there! I dreamed of the Trois-Mont-Blanc-traverse but could not fit it in this year because of the weather!Congratulations!

Re: Outstanding!!!

Hi Andre
Thanks so much! It was taken September 5th. Too bad about the terrible weather for your trip. Yes, they had 1.5 meters of snow just before I arrived, that's why I did this ridge, it was one of the few climbs possible.

Re: Outstanding!!!

Yes conditions were fickle - Aig du Tour was OK day before you took the picture and Gran Paradiso the day after. But conditions stopped us going for the Domes de Miage & Gonella route on Mont Blanc...
And agreed, great picture of my favourite mountain

Re: Outstanding!!!

Hi Mark
You managed to squeeze in some great climbs! I did think though that everything just looked so beautiful with all that fresh snow.
