Great day and good weather.
Really wonderful place.
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 :)
From Cosmiques hut. Nice day, but the route was a bit iced-up.
Have we met?
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.
Hi, there was three of us so we have probably met :)
We bivied below the hut and had an early start - timed it perfectly with sunraise at summit.
Perfect day with James & Edward
Icy route,done without problems,later on we had some avalanch risk
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!
Traversed Mont Blanc from Gouter to Midi & took in Tacul & Maudit en route
Sabrina, Pacalou,Gégé, many other people and me
Nice place to be
Skied and climbed: Couloir Jager, Couloir Diable, Regular North Face, and the Contamine-Negri. Climbed the Gervassutti Pillar.
Love this mountain!
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.
Climbed on descent from Mont Maudit to du Midi
Good views into Italy.
Great climb with Miles Smart after much snowfall.
From Aiguille du Midi cable car, a perfect day great view!
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.
