Traverse of Mont Blanc

With Rosie and Kathryn we traversed Mont Blanc yesterday from the Refuge des Cosmiques, over Mont Blanc du Tacul, Mont Maudit and on to the summit of Mont Blanc. We descended via the Goutier route. An ace time, although we missed Jo so much! At least she got home in time for work and I am still not sure how the others got on with missing their BA flight! But the weather and conditions improved a lot after our ascent of the Grand Paridiso, and even although their organised time with me was over, they decided to change plans and loose their free weekend to attempt Mont Blanc. Due to the last minute change of plans we were unable to find an extra guide for Jo.....

A good time was had by all, its ace being a mountain guide!
