Documentary / Climbing Journal
This is Gaston Rebuffat's fourth film, in which, with several close friends, he discovers the sublime landscapes of the Alps. 'Mont-Blanc is beautiful. I climbed it many times according to the time, the color of the sky and the shape of the cornices and ridges. Because of the weather and also this sensation of altitude the Mont-Blanc gives a great pleasure. For the guide, Mont Blanc is his garden, but the garden becomes more beautiful when it is shown to a friend. Personally I really like the bivouacs; only there one penetrates a little the mystery of the altitude. That's why I immediately agreed when Tazieff expressed the desire to spend the night at the top of Mont Blanc in an igloo. The film won the Grand Prix in the 1961 Trento Festival.
