Mont-blanc Du Tacul

Mont-blanc Du Tacul Trip Report (#15805)

Beautiful acclimatization climb before going for the Mt. Blanc Traverse. On July 1st, it was very cold and windy on the top, and the last few meters were very icy with (at least for an amateur like me) some tricky ice steps. The view from the top was spectacular. At the beginning of the climb, just as one begins the ascent after the Col de Midi, one needs to be careful as there are clear signs of an ice fall and the area is one in which at least 30 minutes are spent going up slowly.
