Mont Blanc; It’s always seemed pretty boring from Chamonix. Compared to all the other peaks you can see from the valley, and the steep lines that are easily accessed, it didn’t seem to me like a very interesting line to climb and ride, just a really long day.

Anyway, I was so wrong. It was so nice to get the top. And perhaps one of the most spectacular lines I’ve ever done. Not so steep, but it’s so amazing to pick your way through the glaciers, traversing under towers of ice the size of 6-storey buildings. Debris littering the snow from recent serac collapses. When we got to about half way down, we couldn’t believe we had another 1400 metres to go.

Full report on my blog;

Hey Andy,

Awesome! Have read the blog. I'm heading for a splitboard ascent of Mont Blanc next week, so if you have any tips or any wisdom to share - do let me know!

Cheers,
Emma
