Bound in the tent

Today is a special day here on Mont Blanc. It’s exactly 225 years since Balmant & Paccard did their 1st ascent back in 1786!

My own climb is not looking good, high winds and much snow. It’s hailed at least 10 cm here at Tete Rousse during the past hour. I even had to bring in my boots in the tent to not have them covered in ice&snow.

Don’t know yet if my plan to go for the summit tomorrow night is possible. I have tp wait and watch…
