Mont Blanc

~ Wednesday 3rd July 2019

Second time lucky this year on Mont Blanc. The first attempt failed in wild and windy weather, seeing us retreating down the Gouter ridge in conditions best described as "Scottish". A week later saw a complete change of scene. Warm and windless, we had a relaxed half hour standing on the summit and James didn't even wear gloves!

It's always a challenge getting to the top of Mont Blanc and it needs weather, snow conditions, acclimatisation and fitness to come together at the right moment, but it's a good feeling when it works out!
