TOUR DU MONT BLANC

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The best day was climbing up to Lac Blanc. It's the busiest part of the route but for good reason, climbing ladders attached to the rockface, seeing Ibex at close quarters, seeing the views of Mont Blanc from the lake and descending into Chamonix all made for a fantastic days trek.

What did you think of your group leader?

We were in safe hands with Graham. He knew so much about the different routes and the best way to go and he managed to challenge everyone in the group by adding in extras.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Travel as light as you can because you'll be carrying your kit and there are plenty of places on route to get fresh water or drinks.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Take a camera.
