Just the two of us...  Sucess!

Classical, normal route across Aiguille de Gouter. Great snow conditions, nasty wind. We were all alone on the summit at that time !!

Climbed with Igi.

3 mont blancs route  Sucess!

Guided climb with 11 friends, alpine start from Cosmiques and made it all the way. Deteriorating weather conditions at the top, I think we basically climbed on the last day of the regular season because weather was bad for the rest of the week.. Very tiring, especially on the way down!

Double ascent and great friends met  Sucess!

First ascent (solo) done on 18th of June in good weather. On the way down on the Col du Gouter I've two peaple who were about to go further up due to comming up weather breakdown and poor visibility on the Col... They decided to go to Vallot because were to tired to go to Refuge du Gouter. I've joined them just in case. Happened that the strom started and last for next 40 hours. After those to days of separation in Vallot rescue hut the weather came back. We were well prepared with food and rest of the gear and decided to go to the peak once again. The weater was even better form me this time. We did the peak and came down throgh Refuge du Gouter down to Chamonix.
Great time great people.
Thank you Mont Blanc. Ave

Gouter  Sucess!

Cruised up the Gouter route in perfect conditions. Hopefully will make it back some day for a more interesting/challenging route.

Solo 3M traverse  Sucess!

Initially planned as a three persons effort, one got sick on the shoulder of Tacul (minor HACE) and we had to take her back to the Cosmiques hut. The other teammate stayed with her and I restarted alone. Slow progress and somewhat scary ice on the col du mont maudit, but finally summited at 11:20, completely alone.
Descent via the goûter, I barely caught the last TMB down after a 16h day.

A great day out.

Route Climbed: Gouter in Solo   Sucess!

After leaving my brother Gabriel in Geneve airport, in the way back to Chamonix, I decided to try Mont Blanc in "solo". I called the Gouter Hut to see if there was room and they confirmed there was. I arrived in the "nid d'aigle" at 2h30pm and reached Tete Rousse hut at 4pm and Gouter hut at 6pm on Aug. 20. Then departed for the adventure at 2h30am reaching summit at 6h30am with strong wind, cloudy and bloody cold. I was back in "nid d'aigle" train at 11h30am... A very thrilling experience, some tears in the summit and my 1rst Solo alpine climb.

Take a look to this trip report and let me know your comments

Success  Sucess!

Met Adam and Graham via a SummitPost forum and climbed this mountain just last week. We hiked from the Valley to Eagle's Nest, then to Toute Rousse, then a big push up to the summit and back down to the train. Also joining us was Lord James, of Her Majesty's Royal Army. Awesome trip folks =)

Goûter Route  Sucess!

Afternoon tram to Nid d'Aiguile. Climbed to Goûter Refuge, arriving at 20:30. Woke up at 2:00 and reached summit by 8:00. Back at to Goûter Refuge by 11:00. Left Goûter Refuge by 12:00 and back at Nid d'Aguile by 15:00. Our inability to sleep on the floor (I forgot my sleeping mat and the room was quite noisy) of the Goûter hut meant that we were really tired on the summit day and our rate of ascent was much slower than we could have otherwise maintained. Other than that, however, the whole trip was remarkably uneventful and the weather was perfect.

Once in a life perfect conditions  Sucess!

A party of three men (me Antonio and Juan Carlos)departed from Gouter Hut at 04:00 am and arrived to the top around 9:15 am.
Climbed with full moon. Once the daylight came there was a perfect clear blue sky and no wind at all during the whole ascent (and descent). We met a lot of people at the top. Even a guy was bringing a electronic keyboard and he was giving a fine concert (singing and playing) from the very top of the Alps. Unrepeatable!!

Gouter route

Trois Monts route, solo  Sucess!

I went up the Aiguille du Midi on wednesday the 20th and climbed Mont Blanc du Tacul for acclimatisation and then stayed at the Cosmique hut for the night. The next morning, on thursday the 21st I left for my summit attempt, I climbed the Mont Blanc du Tacul first, and after summitting I climbed Mont Maudit, and after summitting I climbed on to the col de la Brenva and Mur de la Cote and eventually summitted Mont Blanc. I took the same route back, and stayed a final night at the Cosmique hut and went back down to the valley the next morning, on friday the 22nd, via the Aiguille du Midi.
