Gran Paradiso

And here is the very crowded summit ridge!

Terry is on the Alpine Club Joint Meet to Cogne in the Aosta valley of Italy…

The Gran Paradiso is nearby and is one of the most accessible 4000 metre summits of the Alps, so Terry together with Mark Baron and Clare Wilson from the CC set of to do it from the Vittorio Emanuel hut, above Pont.

Here you see the Gran Paradiso, taken on a different day

Here you see the obligatory beers upon arrival at the hut

And here is the very crowded summit ridge!

Not a difficult climb but nearly 5000ft of ascent – and 7500ft back to the road that day!
