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
