In July, partner Charles Cohen returned to Europe for another mountain climbing holiday. After hiking in the Italian Dolomites with his wife, Charles climbed Gran Paradiso (13,323 ft). He then traveled to the Mont Blanc massif bordering Switzerland, Italy and France, where he summited Dent du Geant (13,166 ft), Pyramide du Tacul (11,378 ft) and completed a “leisurely” traverse of the Aiguilles Marbrées (1,1598 ft).
