Masywe Blatiere i Mont Blanc
Link-ups were the theme of summer 2012 for me. I did a lot of climbing with Jeff Mercier who came up with the plan of traversing the Chamonix Aiguilles in two days but in reverse (far longer and techincal) and by its harder route up the Charmoz. On our first day we left from Montenvers train station and got as far as the bivy before the Blatiere. There had been a ton of fresh snow but it had been an amazing day out covering endless ground. Here Jeff and Frederic Souchon look for a bivy spot whilst the sun sets on the Blatiere and Mont Blanc in the distance.
