    Tragic news

  2. Mont Blanc de Tacul is a pretty benign and well used as a warm-up peak before attempting the summit of Mont Blanc. Cr*p way to go. Thoughts with his friends and family.
  3. Tragic.

    Although the regular route up Mont Blanc du Tacul is technically easy most years it is extremely avalanche prone. Its in that 30 to 45 degree zone where avalanches are most likely.

  4. Thoughts are with the friends and family at this tragic time.
