This week is our final week of season, and yesterday Icicle guide Yves finished in style with his final ascent of the summer on his birthday! Here he is on the summit yesterday with Dean, with the photo taken by Frank. They reported perfect conditions after the fresh snow, though the already sharp summit ridge had an impressive razor thin cornice on it. So that’s it for Mont Blanc for another season. It’s been a highly successful year for us on the peak, though there were a couple of bad weather weeks randomly dotted during the summer. We are already taking bookings for next summer, and the prices are frozen at the same rate as this year.
