Ascent Trip Report

Camped at Tete Rousse. Left at 1am, summit 7 am, back to camp at 10am.
Mt Blanc tram was closed at Nid d’Aigle, all climbers had to get off at Col du Lachlat, adding an extra 800’ vertical and ~1.5 miles. 2:45 hrs from Lachat to a Tete Rousse, and 1:20 hrs descent.
Aiguille du Midi cable car was also closed for repairs so it was a very busy time for the Standard Gouter route.
Grand Couloir was relatively tame though some big rocks did come down in the afternoon.
