Long Day  Sucess!

Via TĂȘte Rousse hut the night before and after. Early start up the rocks and beautiful weather all day, although the ridge was rather crowded. Clear and little wind, quite warm but a long day back to the hut nonetheless.

Almost

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.

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.

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
