      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

mont blanc from tete rousse?

Recommended Posts

i've been corresponding with a guide in france who is suggesting we do mont blanc summit attempt from tete rousse instead of gouter due to unlikely availability of space in gouter. what i'm wondering is whether the shorter summit day would outweigh the drawbacks of camping near gouter. my understanding is that a summit day from tete rousse is 5700ft in elevation gain. i personally have never done more than 4000 ft in one day, so a little worried about trying it on what will also be my highest altitude climb. anyone have insights about this? i'm also considering bailing on the mont blanc climb this year and doing monch/jungfrau instead.
