Part 2.. left Refuge du Gouter at 2am... reached dome du gouter by 2:30am.... all through heavy winds.... stopped for a rest at Refuge Abri Vallot by 3-4am.. Guides not wanting to risk the last part up to the summit ridge... looking back I have to agree with their decision... and there would have been no decent photo opportunity at the top... next time...
