Mont Blanc Team Summits

Hello from Chamonix, France.

Sorry for the delay but our Mont Blanc team summited on Aug 26th! 3 climbers and 2 guides reached the summit of the highest point in Western Europe. The team had a wonderful day climbing high on the mountain.

The next day (Aug 27th) the team descended back to Chamonix and had a great summit celebration dinner in town.

Hello from the Chabod Hutte inside Gran Paradiso national park.
