PENULTIMATE DAY TMB
Another very hot day with wall to wall sun on the penultimate day of this Tour du Mont Blanc. We went up the more scenic route to Col de Balme. The trail that slings round the base of the Croux de Fer is far nicer, giving great views of the Trient Glacier. It is also a much quieter route. To prolong the fabulous views of the Chamonix Valley we headed over the Aiguillete de Posettes before the descent down to Le Tour.
