Arete des Cosmiques, Chamonix, Mont Blanc

Today has been ace! Like most days really but this one was cool as Brian had never climbed a technical route before so from the photos below you can see he had a perfect day and to be a mountain guide in such circumstances is rather rewarding and good fun too!
Over the next couple of days we hope to do the "Trois Mont Blancs". This will take us from the Aig du Midi (we spend night at the Cosmiques mountain refuge) -tomorrow night-, then go up towards Mont Blanc over Mont Blanc du Tacul and Mount Maudit and hopefully on the the summit of Mont Blanc. Brian wants to traverse the mountain so we plan to come down the Goutier ridge which is the more normal route of ascent. I will let you know how it goes!
