bad luck with the heat

Took the tramway up to Mont Lachat-- Nid d'Aigle station was closed for line maintenance to end on 8 August 2015. From there we hiked up to Tete Rousse. Along the way people were saying that the ascent to the Gouter hut would not be possible. We heard a lot of helicopters overhead, and some people informed us that the people descending the mountain were being flown down the couloir because the conditions were so bad. We were told that the police had closed the route and the Gouter hut that we planned to stay at would be closed. So we stayed at the Tete Rousse hut and descended the next day. 4.5 km to the hut one way, and 1100 m gain.

bad weather  Sucess!

I was waiting the whole week in Chamonix for the winds to calm down (not a bad place to wait:). Summited via Gouter route since the weather was not that great. We summited in the evening and had the top just to ourselves. Descent in a blizzard...

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.

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!

3 Mounts Traversee  Sucess!

Reached the summit at 7.15am, hard, very hard mountain to climb. Started at Aiugille du Midi did 3 Mounts Traversee, descend by Gouter 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.
