We took the cable cars up to the Aiguille du Midi at 3800m for some thin-air acclimation.
For the first time we’ve been up here, it was totally clear and dead calm and the Panorama cable car to Italy was running, so we decided to take it.
Great decision- it was absolutely spectacular.https://youtu.be/tp5qW0M5ClM
We had lunch in the Rifugio Torino, which was in thick cloud, but the way back was clear again. We hiked a bit from the mid-station, before the trip back down.
