What a great day. Almost feel a little bit sorry for my partners, who both have had aborted attempts, whereas on my first go, it all goes smoothly, quickly, and with no problems whatsoever. Roughly 9-10 hours from Cosmiques Hut and back including detours to the two other Monts.

After a clean ascent to the Gouter Ridge Hut, we awoke to 40km winds, snow and zero visability,the decision was taken to return to the valley.

After the kuffner and maudit summit. Sustained and tiring descent across 3 monts to the midi. Sadly cloudy on the summit but chuffed all the same. Epic day and great to feel the effort required at high altitude.

Summitted at 8.40 after a 5 hour hike from the Gouter hut.Awesome ridges,exposed and alittle un-nerving unroped as we had decided to tackle the route in this fashion. A brilliant day on the mountain and success after a failed attempt a few years earlier in January.

Late start from train and arrived at old gouter hut late in the eve for a cold bivi in the emergency shelter. 3am start in good conditions. I started to feel the alt. a bit whilst Caroline was recovered from the day before. Rested in the refuge and then continued on to reach the summit at 7.40 am. Desended with low water and food and retrieved our bivi kit and got the last train back to the ski lift. Missed the last ski lift due to the normal one being broken and had to walk down into the valley. Caught the last train into Chaminox and after a expensive taxi ride made it back to the camp-site at 11pm.

Really lucky with conditions. Stayed in Cosmiques on Monday night and were out on the cosmique route by 6am for a 9 hour summit day. (Apparently some of the best conditions on the mountain in the last 15 years.) Unfortunately we couldn't see anything on the summit and by the time we got back to the hut around 3pm for beers, the fog had closed in and the majority of people making an attempt the following day were denied by the strong winds.

Left Abri Vallot with the sunrise and followed the footsteps of some Poles who'd stayed with us the night before (thank for the snacks). Before halfway they turned back as there was a lot of fresh snow and didn't know how steep the drop was from the ridge. Mike powered forward taking an interesting alternative route through the rocks on the right of the ridge. After this we popped back on the ridge and booted fresh tracks to the summit. AWESOME!

Three peaks route. Bivvyed on Vallee Blanche then summitted via Col du Mt Maudit. On way down went over the summit of Maudit to avoid the col. Blue skies. Long day. Set off at midnight to beat the queues at the Bergshrund. Good move. Just managed to catch the 4pm cable car down. Amazing day. Rope + an axe each.

Our ascent began in the direction of the Refuge de Tête Rousse and then through the Goûter Corridor, considered dangerous because of frequent rock-falls, leading to Goûter cabin for night shelter. The next day the route leads to the Dôme du Goûter, the Vallot cabin and L'arrête des Bosses.
