Mont Blanc Day Three

We spent the night at the Orny Hut in Switzerland with the plan to climb back over to France. After a restless night in a room with 23 other climbers, we got up pre-dawn to get a good start on the day (life on the glacier gets hot midday). Starting out on the glacier in the early morning-the light was gorgeous.

Our goal for the day…the Aiguille du Tour (3542 metres)…follow the snow track in the middle of the photo and look at the peak to the right of it.

The last hundred meters was a rock scramble.

Enjoying the view from the summit…

Our ultimate objective was one of the many peaks we saw…

Another great day out in the Chamonix Valley.  Thanks again to the Newfoundland and Labrador Credit Union for their support of this climb and my community outreach efforts.
