My first Mont Blanc Summit

Last week I made my first full ascent of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in western Europe. To say this was an omission from my climbing cv could be seen as an understatement.

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)

Superb weather and soft snow on the Vallee Blanche today. Even got some fresh tracks, although not shown on this video.
A pleasure to be skiing and guiding the white valley again 👍⛷
