Francesco (Franz) Rota Nodari, with Mara Babolin and Marco Bagliani has recently made a trip on the wilder side of Mont Blanc.
The team started at midnight from the bivouac of the Fourche, then climbed the North Face of Aiguille Blanche, then after waiting a few hours for lower temperature, climbed the couloir Eccles and Peuterey ridge up to the top, ending the adventure returning from the Trois Monts and arriving at 9AM at the Aiguille du Midi.
A wonderful ride on classical high mountain ambience with breathtaking views of some of the most attractive sides of the western Alps. Enjoy the nice portfolio
