This is the summit photo from yesterday on the top of Mont Blanc. It marked the final week of courses for this summer season. This year has been spectacular in terms of exceptionally stable weather, and of the 16 weeks of the summer season when the huts are open, groups have successfully ascended it on 14 weeks, not to mention all the weekend Mont Blanc extension ascents. Now the mountain will be very quiet until the ski ascents in April and May. Congratulations to all those who enjoyed the privilege of making it to the summit, and a huge thanks to the guiding team who made it happen! Now in Chamonix many of the cable cars close for maintenance before the winter season starts in early December.
