Mont-blanc Du Tacul Trip Report (#15810)

Used this first peak above 4,000m to train for Mont Blanc later that week (after hiking down Vallee Blanche the day before). Good fun and easy for most (so everyone keeps telling me) but still quite tiring for a newcomer. Lovely looking peak with fantastic views. I particularly liked the final rocky pinnacle - after scrambling up it did feel like a summit. Beautiful day for it, and it was a real priviledge to see the views. Mont Blanc looks very close, and not much higher.
