Out of 8 days in the alps, the only two weather days were our summit days, so we made it Vallot hut and turned around about 1,400 from the summit. Hope to go back.

My 6th ascent...   Sucess!

Climbed this time via the 'Italian' normal route, which I have had on my 'to-do' list for a long time.

This ascent ticked off 2 other 'to-do's' - a bivvy on the summit plus crossing to Mont Blanc de Courmeyeur.

The night at the top of Europe was complicated by a thunderstorm - more to follow in the planned trip report!

My second time  Sucess!

Mark and I climbed the Italian normal route and bivvied (almost) on the summit. Next morning we made a foray to Mont Blanc de Courmayeur before descending the 3 monts route, which is how I had climbed it the first time, four years ago. Although the Italian route is much longer, technically I found it easier than the 3 monts.

3 Monts route  Sucess!

Climbed with Mike Chen, lead by a Chamonix High Mountain Guide. Summitted in 6 hrs 20 min from Cosmiques Refuge. Awesome mountain and what an exceptional route!

Monte Bianco from the Italian side  Sucess!

Avoided the masses and the crowded Gouter hut by chosing the so-called Pope route via Gonella hut which hosted only 15 other guests that day. Slept very well, then summited in perfect weather and descended to Chamonix.

Chilly Willy  Sucess!

Climbed in 2005 and 2012. Both via Gouter Route. Awesome feeling to get to the top both times. Second time we hit the summit just as the sun came up over the Eastern Alps. Wrap up warm kids

Trois Mont Traverse  Sucess!

Free solo ascent made on the morning of Sept. 7th. From speaking to the staff at the Refuges Des Cosmiques, no one had summited this route in nearly 2 weeks due to a high avalanche risk advisory in effect and new crevice formations which were deemed difficult to spot because of fresh snow.

Close to 100 climbers at the refuge, 8 of us set out and 6 (4 person team and two soloists) of us made it to the summit.

It took nearly 12 hours to summit(2pm) - there was no trail after Mont Blanc du Tacul and we took a vertical ice climb through Mt. Maudit. I took another 12 hours going down the Gouter route till I arrived in the Chamonix Valley (2am) in one giant 24 hour full traverse effort.

Gouter from Tete Rousse  Sucess!

My first big trip - very fulfilling! Trained like hell for it (from nothing) for a few months and found it relatively easy.
