Another Mont Blanc success! Tuesday was cold and windy, but starting from the Tete Rousse hut at 1.30am we made the top at about 10 o'clock.  Good snow conditions meant a fast descent and we were back at the Gouter 2 hours later for lunch, 2 hours down to Tete Rousse, then down for the train and a slow tired drive back to a huge meal in Evolene.
