The Alpine Season has arrived!

We are into our first week of the 2012 summer alpine season, and have had fantastic weather and conditions. Dave missed out on Mont Blanc summit last summer because of very bad weather, but this year took a chance on the early season and topped out after a five hour ascent from the Cosmiques Hut this morning. Dave said that reaching the top of Mont Blanc and having the mountain all to ourselves was pretty good, but the high points of the week so far were being allowed to sleep in the guides room at the Albert Premier Hut, and having chocolate mousse for pudding at the Cosmiques.
