Done as acclimatisation training for Tom's article on Mt Blanc fever for The Sunday Times. First pitch was awesome: WOW exposure when swinging out onto the S face from the chimney (just as rope drag gets bad...) Easy scramble up slab from there to the next short steep pitch, and then a romp to the summit. Great. Abbed down the proper way, not the dicing with death method that Tom had apparently employed on his last ascent!

Good climbing, though a fair old slog up and down scree before and after. Missed last 'phrique, couldn't get a bed at the Lac Blanc hut, so settled for omelette and beer then walked down in the dark.
