Hello this is Jonathon Spitzer with the Mont Blanc and Matterhorn extension. Today is July 12th and we are currently up at the Gouter Hut, high up on Mont Blanc above 3800 meters. Today we woke up from the Tete Rousse with kind of broken skies and a couple different cloud bands; big cloud band below us and some clouds up high that were dumping a little bit of snow but we were able to manage to climb up to the Gouter Hut.
All of our three climbers who have joined us on our trip are staying positive and you know we’re trying to just work on climbing up Mont Blanc here with the conditions that we’ve been having with unusually cold and snowy Alps this year.
We’re going to wait and see what happens tomorrow with the weather and hopefully make a summit attempt up on the upper mountain. And we’ll be in touch. If all goes well, we might be back in town tomorrow or we might just spend another night here at the Gouter hut. Either way, we’ll be in touch and have a great weekend. Thanks.
