Mont Blanc in a day!

Yesterday we had two teams who climbed Mont Blanc by one route, and descended another, all in one day! They caught the first cable car to Aiguille du Midi, so set off at 07:00. They climbed the Trois Mont Blancs route, over the shoulder of Tacul and Breche Maudit, to reach the summit at 12:45. The weather was perfect and they enjoyed over 15 minutes on the top, before descending to the Gouter, and all the way down past the Tete Rousse to Nid d’Aigle, and the train and cable car down to Les Houches. They were back in Chamonix by 19:00 in time for beers to celebrate their day climb. Good efforts! Today we have other teams in the Gouter making a traditional two day ascent.
