Mont Blanc Ascent

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Eventually reaching the Summit and feeling on top of the world.

What did you think of your group leader?

Bernard, our leader is a well known and respected mountaineer and we had total faith in him and his decision-making. Although his English wasn't always completely clear he was humorous and totally at ease which made us feel comfortable and reassured.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It's really important to be fit and to have endurance as the mountain can be unforgiving. Working as a member of a team is crucial as you can support each other's strengths and weaknesses.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Take time to enjoy the beauty of the mountains around you. The Alps are fantastic and for the English, only on our doorstep !
