The Mont Blanc massif is quite a drive from Zurich (3 hours) but it’s always worth it! Yesterday, we climbed Aiguille du Tour (3544 m) via the couloir de la table. What a great climb: A scenic glacier crossing at sunrise, followed by a snowy couloir, and finished by an exposed ridge traverse on famous Chamonix granite. In the photo one can see Aiguille du Chardonnet on the left, followed by Aiguille Verte, and finally Mont Blanc, which is the chubby snow capped peak in the center of the shot.

Climber on the "couloir de la table" route on Aiguille du Tour (3544 m) in the Mont Blanc massif with Aiguille du Chardonnet, Aiguille Verte, and Mont Blanc (from left to right) (keywords: aiguille verte, aiguille du chardonnet, aiguille du midi, aiguille du tour, alpen, alps, berg, berge, bergsteiger, dome de gouter, france, frankreich, kletterer, leute, mont blanc, mont blanc du tacul, mont blanc massif, person, wächte, wächten, alpinist, climber, cornice, crevasse, glacier, mountain, mountaineer, mountains, people, ridge)
