Mont Blanc success!

~ Friday 11th September 2009

 Yes, another successful Mont Blanc ascent, making it 4 out of 4 this summer. 

This time we went from the Cosmiques hut, climbing the "3 Monts" route in perfect - if a bit chilly - weather. The route is in great condition at the moment, and we made a quick 5 1/2 hour ascent.

 The Vignettes hut will be closing next Thursday (10th September) which is earlier than planned. 

There is still the winter room though...



Alpine Introduction Course

~ Friday 4th September 2009




                              A 3 day Alpine Intro course this week - a very busy 3 days!

There's a lot to cover, but by day 3 were standing on a summit with a view from Mont Blanc to the Matterhorn - endless peaks to climb.
