Mont Blanc in evening!

Our main Mont Blanc course group went up to the Gouter hut on Wednesday, then checked the latest forecasts and were concerned about the predicted high winds the next day. The conditions were perfect, a little fresh snow, but low wind, so they continued… and continued… and summited in the early evening! Our teams reached the top at around 19:00, and had the summit to themselves. They descended to the hut for dinner and a well deserved sleep. This was a great decision by the guides, as the forecast was accurate, and the next day no one reached the summit due to high winds, yet all our groups could smile smugly. Well done all. Here is an online album of photos taken by Kim of the ascent; http://picasaweb.google.fr/IcicleUK/MontBlancGouterRoute
