Mont Blanc at 4810m is the highest summit in Western Europe. It was a huge challenge as they are not experienced climbers and had to undergo intensive training where they were taught everything from knots and ropework, to crevasse rescue hoist systems, to avalanche prediction and the use of crampons. Mont Blanc is nearly a kilometer lower than the likes of Kilimanjaro, but it is leagues harder, often colder, all on snow and each year 300 people die trying to reach the summit.
