Mont-blanc Du Tacul Trip Report (#15798)

We left Rif. Torino at 0h15 and traversed the Glacier du Geant by night. It was really wonderful to see the long procession of feeble lights of the people climbing the north-west face in their way to Mont Blanc. Unluckily my rope-mate had some altitude sickness and we did not continue to Mont Blanc. Anyway, Mont Blanc du Tacul was quite funny in its last 50 meters. We enjoyed an unforgettable dawn with Cervino and Monte Rosa. Most of all it was our first 4000 peak.
