Hi everyone. It’s now 5:30 pm CET (French time) and we are in the Goûter refuge safe and sound if a little weary following a most amazing day. The story of our day deserves to be told more fully than I feel able to do today as I’m fairly tired and the refuge has a strict ‘lights out’ policy at 8pm and we need to repack for tomorrow and eat. However I know you’ll want to know the outcome. The weather turned out not to be as balmy as forecast but I am delighted to tell you that David, Stephen and I stood on the summit of Mont Blanc at midday CET, that’s 11:00 uk time. We are all in good shape and looking forward to being back in Chamonix Tuesday afternoon. I will blog the story tomorrow or Wednesday.
