Although he did have crampons and also an ice-axe is recommmended. Of course my mum doesn't want me to go, but going to the peak of Mont Blanc is very tempting.
Hey man, if you have the opportunity you might as well do it. And hey, if you don't make it back then at least you get to die in a more interesting way than what most people get. An old-aged cardiac seizure just doesn't have any glory y'know. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
