Mont Blanc Summit View

Mont Blanc Summit View

This picture was taken from the summit of Mont Blanc (4807 m), looking northeast into Switzerland.

Beginning in the Vallee Blanche on the French side, we circumnavigated the mountain and spent the night in the Trident Hut in Italy. Waking up at midnight, we left the hut at 1:30 am to ascend the Brenva Spur route, climbing by headlamp and reaching the summit at 8:30 in the morning.

We descended by way of the Bosses Ridge via the Grand Mulet route for a traverse of the mountain back into France. Round trip time from the Trident Hut back to our tent in the Vallee Blanche was 16 hours.
