Jeannette Gysling and Peter Heath from Switzerland joined us for the Tour du Mont Blanc. This period at the end of July and start of August proved a good one for weather. It also proved good for spotting marmots, ibex and a viper!

Jeannette and Peter at Grand Col Ferret, the TMB's Swiss-Italian border.

Crossing the Bionnassay glacier's huge outflow on the way to Les Contamines.

Success! At Fenetre d'Arpette, one of the Tour's roughest and highest climbs.

A section of ladders eases the way up to Tete aux Vents and Lac Blanc. This stretch can be bypassed by an alternative route.
