Preperations for an ascent of Mont Blanc
Here are photos of Alex and James Ausden. They are here for a week with me in and around Chamonix. They have not climbed before but are really amazing and want to climb Mont Blanc and we are spending our days doing just that. They are fit young guys and rather than snow plod around the easier summits they are keen to try climbs which are a bit more technical but still at altitude, so that while testing themselves on some interesting climbs they are still acclimtiasing and getting ready for the Mont Blanc summit attempt.
The photos shown here are of Point Lachenal and then climbing a ridge overlooking Italy.
