Mont Blanc today with @searlerdave and @bentibbettsphotography, up the Trois Monts from first bin, and down the NorthFace/GrandMulet/Bossons. There was no track past Mont Blanc du Tacul, really strong wind, and loaded slopes on the north side of Mont Maudit, which persuaded us to climb on the more technical last part of the Kuffner Arête... All these things made it slower and more tiring than it would’ve been normally, but also more interesting and memorable. Anyways, I’d never climbed Mont Maudit before, so that was neat! @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @plum_officiel

After 2 attempts to climb San Gorgonio via the North chutes in March, Ellen and I succeeded yesterday. We took the trail all the way to Dry Lake, then followed a gully with boot tracks to the base of one of the more easterly chutes. We could see boot tracks most of the way up the chute, put on our crampons, and began to follow them up. The snow was fabulously sticky. As we neared the top it got steeper, but we weren’t too concerned because of the great condition of the snow. It was a joyous moment when we attained the top of the ridge. We happily made our way to the summit of San G and had lunch and shot some pics. Going back down the chute took longer than expected because of our level of trying to keep safe. Sorry, but I didn’t get any pics from climbing the chute...I was very focused on just climbing!
