MONT BLANC ASCENT

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The most inspirational moment of my trip was standing on the top of Mont Blanc du Tacul, with the summit of Mont Blanc and Mont Mauduit to one side and a full panoramic view of the Swiss Alps on the other.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader, Bernard, was excellent. He kept us safe, and every decision that he made was made with the utmost care and thorough evaluation of all the options. Simply put, he was fantastic. 

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I think that travellers should make sure that they have a basic level of winter mountaineering experience before attempting this climb. If you are learning how to use an ice axe and crampons for the first time then this is not the place for you. Go prepared and you will have a great time! 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

A great all round experience with a great guide, well worth the money! Sadly the summit wasn't meant to be for us, but I will be back :)
