Many thanks to those of you who supported me on the Mont Blanc charity challenge to raise over £3,000 for Grove House Hospice.
Our team of six (Ciara, Claire, Tom, Dick, Beric and myself) had a great time climbing three 3,500m peaks in the Mont Blanc Massif - Aiguille du Tour, Tete Blanche and La Petite Fourche in glorious weather. Unfortunately, later in the week, strong winds and low cloud prevented us from climbing Mont Blanc itself. However, three of us (including myself) were able to climb Gran Paradiso - the highest mountain in Italy at 4061m - a gruelling but fabulous 11½ hour day!
