Perfect conditions for our ascent of Mont Blanc this week. Safe and snowy in the Grand Couloir, but warm and windless up high meaning we could spend half an hour on the summit appreciating the feeling of standing on the highest peak in Europe.

We had 3 days of blue skies for our acclimatising trip around the Orny and Trient huts, where we climbed the Aiguille du Tour and Tete Blanche as well as brushing up on crampon and rope skills - and enjoying the stunning views.
