Trois Mont Blanc
Just back down in Chamonix town after guiding the three Mont Blancs from the Cosmiques hut to the Goutier and down to Les Houches. Was very windy on the summit yesterday at 8.25 am. On the summit of Mont Blanc, with Leo and Nigel. I had to do an emergency repair on my gore tex trousers with hockey tape( thanks for that tip Chick it works well in the cold and held in the 5o k/hr winds.!). There was me saving some cash by buying a cheap pair of over trousers from Sport Extreme, while waiting for my new Mountain Equipment ones to arrive in the post.... So, I did not even get one Mont Blanc trip out of the low cost pair...... there is a lesson here!
