Summit of Mont Blanc

Here is a great photo of Katherine and Alison on the summit of Mont Blanc yesterday. All our clients successfully reached the top this week, and enjoyed great conditions. Despite the very hot weather at the start of the week, the temperatures had dropped to enable good re-freezes over the nights on Wednesday and Thursday. Conditions on the peak are very good, but as ever at this time of year great care has to be taken when crossing the Gouter couloir. Groups need to respect the timings on this part of the mountain, to try and cross when it is still well frozen and the risk of rockfall is at its minimum.
