Imagining the impossible | Climbing Mont Blanc with EMIS for their charity challenge
Mont Blanc (4,807 m) is the highest summit in Western Europe and is extremely symbolic. The first recorded ascent of Mont Blanc was on August 8th 1786 by Jacques Balmat and Michel Paccard. This climb, initiated by Horace-Bénédict de Saussure, is considered by many to be the start of modern mountaineering worldwide. For this reason, climbing Mont Blanc is a big honour.
