Sunrise on the summit  Sucess!

Done via normal route from Col du Midi as a part of acclimatization before the Mont Blanc. Somehow we have managed to see the very first rays of the sun on the summit - perfect timing :)

Re: Normal route

Hi, Possible. I met a rope-team of three who were descending while we were on our way up about 2/3rds of the way, between 7-8 am; they spoke to us and advised us to summit soon. On our way down we met countless parties, so I don't remember any of them individually.

Accidental summit  Sucess!

We were on the three mounts traverse, but had planned to pass by Tacul on the ascent and save it for the descent perhaps, if we would feel like it. However, we took a wrong turn in the darkness and ended up on Tacul anyway!

Acclimatization before MB traverse  Sucess!

Climbed it to acclimatize before a Mont-Blanc traverse the next day. The face was in great conditions but we were very slow (no wonder: one of us came down with HACE the next day...). Very windy on the last snow ridge but the rock scramble was sheltered and quite pleasant. Amazing views from the summit!

Left the refuge at 6:15, summit around 11:00 and back down at 13:00.

too much wind  Sucess!

The plan was to traverse the three mount blancs from the Cosmique but the wind was terrible. We reached the Epule te tacoul in 2:10 and then the top in 2:45.
The wind was terrbiel so we rinunced ot go further. Anyway a nice climbing.
