On The Ladders, Aiguillete Argentiere 
North Face Grandes Jorasses & Mer de Glace

Ibex walking on the trail with us

Another terrible view for lunchtime
Aiguilles Rouge
Grandes Jorasses to Mont Blanc
Final day of this TMB and more cracking weather. The route up to Lac Blanc from Argentiere takes in 'The Ladders'. This is a small section of the trail which comes up to the spectacular Aiguillete Argentiere and a steep rock band. The artificial ironmongary easily gets you through the rock. Around this area you are virtually guaranteed to see Ibex. Sure enough a young Male came trotting off the hillside and onto the path. Higher up the mountain you come to some lovely pools of water, Lac de Chesserys. We got a superb Mont Blanc reflection in the lake. Final slopes up to Lac Blanc and a well deserved pint at the refuge. A top day to finish off on. Four weeks out in Chamonix and only 4 poor weather days, the rest was just blue skies and hot sun, pretty damn good I would say.
