A perfect start to the summer Alpine season on Mont Blanc, with all our groups summiting this week. Thursday provided the best weather window of the week, as you can see from the clear blue skies behind them in this summit photo. With the Bellvue cable car not opening until today, our groups ascended via a 4×4 convoy up the steep jeep tracks, to save their legs for the climb itself. The plan paid off, and by spending a couple of nights at the Tete Rousse hut, one before and one after the climb, they all reached the summit. Conditions are looking great for the start of season on Mont Blanc, with good snow cover, no rockfall, and safe glaciers too.
