adventures with Jen Olson

The Mont Blanc

A photo story of climbing this prolific mountain from the Cosmiques Hut on the traverse of the three summits.

Mont Blanc from Lac des Cheserys

Early Morning Light on the Tacul du Mont Blanc

Weaving through the seracs on the Tacul du Mont Blanc

Perfect conditions despite the storm

the traverse from the tacul to the maudit

the technical cruxes of the route lie on the Mont Maudit

Pitched climbing on the Maudit

Amazing views of the Aiguille du Midi rising above the clouds

Castles in the Sky

SUMMIT! despite challenging winds, late start and adverse conditions ; )

descending the Gouter ridge

On the way down from the Tete Rousse hut in the morning

Walking the tracks when the train is under repair

On a recent trip, we summitted the Tacul du Mont Blanc under adverse conditions:

Walking out of the Aiguille du Midi requires full concentration

winds on the summit ridge

turn the volume down ; )

climbing to the summit of the tacul

a grateful summit without wind

rush hour on the aiguille du midi
