Mont Blanc, the White Mountain, is the highest peak found in Western Europe, it is also the world’s deadliest mountain. This was my destination and together with old and new friends we tried to reach the top.
I arrived in Chamonix on a sunny day in august and hooked up with Petter who’s been living in Chamonix for quite a long time. We ate a tasty dinner while talking about good old memories. Several hours went by and we decided to meet with the other guys joining in on the ascent to grab a few drinks. The night was spent planning our climb as we talked about everything from what gear we should bring to how the weather forecast would be the coming days. Another big focus for the night was the safety of the climb. Over the course of the last two weeks eight climbers had died.
