Last Mont Blanc 2010

Here is one of the final summit photos from Mont Blanc, of the group guided by Gilles. Eight clients from Icicle summited on Thursday, and these were our final summit teams from the Summer 2010 season. This week was an international affair, with clients from the UK, Iran, Australia, USA and Ireland, and well done all for your efforts. As if to announce that this is the end of the season, snows fell last night down to the treeline in Chamonix, thus effectively closing the mountain until next year. The Gouter hut has already closed, and the Tête Rousse hut has its last night open on Monday, though the snowfalls render the mountain prone to avalanche risk for several days now.
