Long day on the Grand Pilier D’Angle

Grand pilier D'Angle and the Peutery Ridge on Mt Blanc - line of the Cechinal -Nomine marked

Dave Hollinger and Rob Jarvis have been taking a few days off guiding and are just back from a big day out on the Grand pilier D’Angle on Mont Blanc – making a fast ascent of the Cechinal-Nomine Route in excellent conditions. 

Leaving the Fourche Bivouac hut at 2am, they were up the route by lunchtime and climbed the upper half of the Peutery Ridge to reach the summit of Mt Blanc by 5pm.  Finally, they then walked all the way to the valley from the summit of the Blanc in just 5hrs – very impressive!
