Help and Advice
Hi I need advice please. I am 50 this year. My fitness is not wonderful. However I climbed Galtee Beag and Galtee Mor twice since Xmas. Once in heavy snow conditions and last weekend in excellent conditions. I was reasonably comfortable and not knackered. I would like to register with guides in Chamonix to climb Mont Blanc this August to celebrate my 50. It costs a lot and I would hate to fail miserably. Will I be able to get fit enough in time. My email is tmtiernanmartin@gmail.com
