Mont Blanc traverse

Just got photos from a week ago uploaded, from the group who ascended Mont Blanc via the traverse route from the Aiguille du Midi. The route is also called the Trois Monts Blancs route, as it ascends over the shoulder of Mont Blanc du Tacul, then over the Breche Maudit (see the photo) and then over Mur de la Cote to reach the summit of Mont Blanc. The group of friends was guided by Stefano (ITA), Francis (FRA) and David (CAN), and in a rare achievement, the group all reached the top together for a group photo. The conditions were reported as perfect, and the route was quiet as it requires a higher level of fitness than the Gouter route. You can see photos of the ascent at; http://picasaweb.google.com/IcicleUK/MontBlancTroisMontsTraverseRoute
