 A great start to the summer reaching the top of Mont Blanc yesterday!

The start of the week was a battle with the weather and some random forecasts, but we still climbed the Aiguille du Tour and Tete Blanche - both are perfect for acclimatising and training for Mont Blanc.

                                     By Tuesday we were ready for Mont Blanc. We climbed the Gouter route, leaving the Tete Rousse hut at 2.00am and reaching the top at 9 o'clock. Great weather and good conditions all the way.
