I arrived at Chamonix on the 18th of August, 1871, fully decided to make the ascent of Mont Blanc, cost what it might. My first attempt in August, 1869, was not successful. Bad weather had prevented me from mounting beyond the Grands-Mulets. This time circumstances seemed scarcely more favourable, for the weather, which had promised to be fine on the morning of the 18th, suddenly changed towards noon. Mont Blanc, as they say in its neighbourhood, “put on its cap and began to smoke its pipe,” which, to speak more plainly, means that it is covered with clouds, and that the snow, driven upon [suite...]

How to climb a mountain « Robyn's Wanderings

Thin air and massive views: climbing Mont Blanc

Little did I know how it feels to try and breathe at nearly five thousand meters above sea level.  Little did I know how it feels to look down from the highest point in the European Alps.  Human beings were not designed to survive up there, yet I have joined the faithful following that makes the pilgrimage each summer to the high mountains.
