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.

Mont Blanc Team #4 Summits Gran Paradiso!

Hello from the Chabod Hutte inside Gran Paradiso national park.

This morning our team departed the hut around 4:45am and made there way towards the summit. We reached the summit shortly after 9am. We had amazing weather and all members felt good.

We got back to the hut early afternoon and enjoyed a hot plate of homemade pasta 🍝🙂

Here is a picture from the summit today
