Félicien Silvestre our ambassador tells us about his excursion to the highest peak in Europe: Mont Blanc.
Since I was very young the mountain has always been a place that fascinates me.
That's why I started mountain biking and trail riding but during most of my outings I saw it "the Mont Blanc" without really knowing if one day I would have the opportunity to climb it.
So we decided with my friends Adrien and Antoine to make this day-long ascent through the Three Mountains, a magical and breathtaking itinerary.
Friday August 9, 2019 was a beautiful day. After having taken the 4th dumpster of the aiguille du midi we started our journey in the direction of Le Tacul and then we reached the Mont Maudit while enjoying the landscape to the maximum. We then had the last 300 meters of ascent before the summit which were the hardest but worth it. After a 5h50 ascent we reached the summit of Mont Blanc with the clouds, but the magic of the place "it" was obviously present.
This dream had finally become a reality but we still had the longest one left, going back down to the bottom of the valley. So we continued on the road towards the Goûter refuge, a magnificent view along the way that also took our breath away. Once we arrived at the refuge, we took the time to contemplate the landscape and then we went back to the Goûter corridor, a corridor where one's destiny can change in a split second. Having successfully crossed this passage, we continued our adventure in the direction of the Nid d'Aigle (which was closed) then we went down to Les Houches.
An end that was physically hard but this day was full of emotions and memories.
The mountain is more and more dangerous, do not venture into the high mountains without a guide or without the necessary knowledge and sufficient physical level.
