Mont-blanc Du Tacul Trip Report (#15809)
- Signed By: Gordon Carroll
- Date submitted: November 05, 2001
- Date(s) climbed: 27th July 2001
I summited du Tacul for the first time on my eighteenth birthday as a practice-run for Mont Blanc. Stayed on the summit for an hour or more, just admiring the view. A great peak for beginners to train on, and for advanced climbers who just want a take-it-easy climb. Aim to reach it at about midday on a clear day, when the views are best and the temperature is comfortable enough for you to be able to sit for a long time, sipping tea.
The descent was followed by lots of celebrating in one of Chamonix's many bars.
Best birthday I ever had.
