After a week of pouring rain we, my sister and I finally went up on Thursday by cable car of the Aiguille du Midi. Bad luck again, a bold of lightning struck the upper part so we had to stay the night at the mid-station. The next day we went up around 6 am and were at the Col du Midi at 7:30 am. We went for the Mont Blanc but time wasn't on our side because we couldn't leave earlier. Just below the Col du Mt Maudit, around 11:00 am we decided not to climb the Mont Blanc but to go back and climb the Mont Blanc du Tacul. Which was anyway on our schedule for the way back from the Mont Blanc. A relative easy climb with great views from the summit. We stayed there for only 15 minutes because of the wind. Last part is icy rock climbing but not to difficult(don't look down in the couloir Gervasutti). Enjoy your climb!! Next year I'll be back for the Mont Blanc Traverse. Roderik
