"That was one of the goals I was preparing for as part of my solo expedition in the Alps! Tried to scale it all the way from Chamonix, but after reaching the top of Mer de glace glacier, got kicked out by bad weather. So I took the lift to Aiguille du Midi and went up the 3 Monts route to Mont Blanc and spent the night at Vallot bivouac at 4365m. The next day walked all the way down to the village Les Houches at 1000m altitude. (Gps track to follow. i am still on the Alps solo expedition!)" - Mont Blanc, Christos, Aug 11, 2018
"28/07/18 left Chamonix and drove through the Mont Blanc tunnel to Pont Italy in the Gran Paradiso national park. Hiked up to the vittorio emanuele 11 refuge 2732 m assent of 850m. Had lunch cheese and ham omelette, rested until set evening meal lasagne then meat and mash potato's, and then desert. Food was excellent, but squat toilets (WHY DO THEY STILL EXIST IN 2018?) Left the hut after a light breakfast 4:30 am reached the summit at 8:54 am after a short exposed climb. A magnificent clear day with great views Back to the hut for omelette then back to Pont. Then back to Chamon" - Gran Paradiso, JohnJones, Jul 29, 2018
"Incredible climb and summit. Got lucky with weather with minimal rain on the approach day to Chabot hut and sunny skies on summit day. Snow cover on the normal dry morraine meant early crampons all the way until the summit. Guide pushed the pace through the crevasses glacier with an exposed knife ridge finish. Holly gave it her all despite near frostbitten hands. One of my most memorable summits to date. Complete TR: https://themtsarecalling.com/granparadiso/" - Gran Paradiso, Christopher, Jun 14, 2018
"Started with my guide Michal Sekelsky at 4 in the morning from the Hörnli hutte. Tired after no sleep in the hut. Around 30 people in total started to climb. Reached Solvay hut within 2- 2,5 hours during the sunrise, and put on the crampons at the start of the fixed ropes. Used no axe after the fixed ropes near the summit. Cloudy weather but on the way down the sky cleared up a bit. Drank 2 liters of water and 1,5 l Coke! and had a bar and a sandwich at Solvay hut on the way down. It took me 4,5 hours up but around 6 hours down. Exposure on the ridge and tired knees is one explanation. The cli" - Matterhorn, niklasbennwik, Jul 18, 2017
"Started the half traverse of Breithorn from the klein Matterhorn cable car at 8.15 and reached the peak at 11.15 and came back to the cable car at 12.15. At the ridge poor visibility and wind speed up to 70 kmh. Climbed with a guide and Takayuki Tamaki from Osaka. Good day! " - Breithorn (Mittelgipfel), niklasbennwik, Jul 16, 2017
