On the summit yesterday, the MacArthur family!
Mont Blanc at 4810m or 15873 ft has always drawn mountaineers from all over the world. The ascent is achievable by any person in good physical condition, however high altitude and unpredictable weather should be taken into consideration, as they induce a commitment factor! Good stamina, getting used to altitude and a basic knowledge of mountaineering skills, glacier travel and mountain safety are fundamental.
