Earlier in August, Yen and I embarked on our Tour De Mont Blanc reccy. We are going to run this as a trip next year, so wanted to do a scoot round and check the route and accommodation on the way. We had a great trip although the weather wasnt as kind as we hoped, or as good as we would normally expect. Its a spectacular route, as anyone who has done it will testify, and for anyone who hasnt done it, we can say that it definitely has to be on the list of great routes to do, so maybe think about joining us next year.
We started in Les Houches and headed anti-clockwise stopping off at Les Contamines, Les Chapieux, Elisabetta hut, Courmayer, Rifugio Bonatti, La Fouly, Champex, Le Tour, and Flegere amongst others.
Many highlights, but the views on the section to the Bonatti Hut, and Flegere were probably my favourites. Some of the huts themselves are lovely and in spectacular positions, so it was a great trip.
