Mont Blanc and the Peuterey Ridge (1980)

We were on our way for a week's climbing, walking and trekking holiday in the Italian Alps. We had passed through the Mont Blanc tunnel and were now in Italy.

This view of the Italian side of Mont Blanc was taken near Courmeyer. The Peuterey Ridge which leads to the summit of Mont Blanc is nearest the camera. One of my unfullfiled ambitions was climbing Mont Blanc by the Peuterey Ridge. Alas, man proposes, etc...

Now we were in Italy we would have to change our terminology. Au revoir, Mont Blanc! Buon giorno, Monte Bianco!
