      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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 Traverse

Recommended Posts

On July 3-5, 2016, we climbed Mont Blanc in a really fun way: we drove under it using the 11 km Mont Blanc tunnel, stayed at the Italian Refugio Gonella, climbed up a remote route on the Italian side, traversed the summit, descended the classic Three Summits route, stayed at the French Refuge de Cosmiques, then used the Hellebronner gondola to get across and back down to the Italian side. It was beautiful, challenging, and memorable.

 

Once again, I don't have the wifi speed to upload pictures to cc.com (apologies!), but I was able to upload them to my blog a few days ago when I had a better connection. Here it is:

Nice report. That is a cool way to get it done. Having done the 3 summits route up and down, I like your way instead of the soul crushing yo-yo's both ways that we got to "experience".
