6th and 7th July 2011 Refuge Vallot

Descending the Aiguille De Gouter.

For the last two days I have been out of the valley attempting Mont Blanc via the Gouter Route. On this route it is necessary to cross Le Grand Couloir. The quantity of snow in the couloir has decreased massively during this hot period meaning that stonefall is now an issue.

We made it over the Aiguille De Gouter and Dome De Gouter to the Refuge Vallot but had to turn around due to poor visibility and very strong winds.
