Mont Blanc Summit Celebration Dinner!

Greeting from Chamonix France!

On July 22nd we all descended safely back to Chamonix after our successful summit climb.  After some much needed hot showers, we did some tourist shopping in Chamonix. In the evening we met up for a lovely traditional French dinner with several bottles of red wine to help celebrate our success.

We are very proud of all our climbers on this trip for their hard work and training prior to climbing Mont Blanc. Their preparation and training made the difference in their summit. Thank You!

Our guides are off to Zermatt, Switzerland tomorrow and later in the week to guide the mighty Matterhorn. Thanks for following the Alps cycbercast and we will be in touch from Zermatt.
