This week saw 100% success for our groups on Mont Blanc, with everyone reaching the summit via the Gouter route. The weather was absolutely perfect for them on Thursday with hardly a breath of wind. Here is a photo of our first group on the summit at 06:30, of John with Julian, who were guided by Alain. In the photo, you can see the massive shadow of Mont Blanc on the left, projected into the distance. The guides reported the conditions as excellent throughout the ascent, with even the Gouter couloir being good for the time of year, especially considering the heat of this week.
