Dom Trip Report (#1790)

One of the best climbs I made. The mountain with the biggest height difference between summit and starting point in the whole Alps: about 3200m. On a mountain like Mont Blanc many respectless climbers take a cablecar until aiguille du midi, 3800m. On Dom it's impossible to take cablecars, so it's one of the last pure mountains in the Alps, like Weisshorn. The climb itself is absolutely not boring: a good mix of firn, snow and rock. On the summit you feel the most powerfull human being on earth.
