Mont Blanc

Keith, Peter and S on the summit 7.25 am on the 2 July.
Another wonderful Mont Blanc ascent. We departed from the Cosmiques mountain hut at 1.45 am and arrived on the summit of Mont Blanc at 7.25am. Our route took us along the "trois Mont Blanc's", Mont Blanc Du Tacul, Mont Maudit and then Mont Blanc. We enjoyed a wonderful sunrise and there was absolutely no wind, a rare occurrence indeed. We traversed the mountain by descending the normal (Goutier route). An ace couple of days!
