More Chamonix

Descending from the Mt. Blanc du Tacul with early morning light.

Just got back from two day attempt on Mt. Blanc's NE Ridge for On Top. Unfortunatlely, we missed the summit due to high winds and a bunch of fresh snow, but we did manage to climb the Lachenal Traverse on Day 1 and the Arete de Cosmique on on Day 2.

Looking back at the Dent de Geant and some climbers on the rock spire half-way along the Lachenal Traverse.

Kunal V on the Lachenal Traverse with a wiley French guide hot on his heels.

Evening from the Cosmique Hut.

Early morning on Mt. Blanc du Tacul

This may look like the same photo as the first but there are a few differences. The Cosmique Arete is the left hand ridge leading up to the Aiguille du Midi.
