Video: Higher Ground –– A Beautiful Tribute to Mount Blanc

Often times we’re so focused on the big mountain peaks in the Himalaya and the Karakoram, that we often forget about the beautiful and majestic mountains that are found in other parts of the world. Take Mont Blanc for instance. There are few mountains on Earth that have had a bigger influence on mountaineering than this iconic peak, and yet it is often overlooked in this day and age. This video is a sharp reminder of just how amazing Mont Blanc truly is, providing stunning imagery of one of Europe’s most impressive natural wonders. This is the kind of video that you just want to sit back and soak in. In doing so, think about all of the great climbers who cut their teeth on this particular mountain. The list is long and very distinguished.
