Sunshine but they still say No!

Posted by neil On August - 19 - 2010

We thought it was all over, well it is now. Mont Blanc has no path for us to climb the guides say, the weather up on the mountain is to bad they say, no one will make a summit push tomorrow they say. I say that we should have made the trip this morning to the Cosmiques Hut, did some higher training and then spent the night there for a summit push tomorrow.

The weather may have been bad yesterday but there isn’t a cloud around the top today, I feel that there’s weather concerns (with a large slice of can’t be arsed-ites) on the guides part, they have to consider our safety but I think they only can only be arsed to go to the top if the weather is 100% and that’s hardly ever going to happen. Let’s face it they get there money whether we make it to the top or not so how easy is it for them to take us on a jolly over a 3000 mtr ridge in fare weather rather than into the real Alps, that’s what we paid for eh!

We are going for a beer, I’ll finish this later!
