Late summer cleaning at Gervasutti!

 

Friday September 21, during the annual cleaning of the bivouacs of Mont Blanc by the Alpine Guides of Courmayeur, we went up to our “Gervasutti” with Renzino Cosson and Francesco Civra Dano.
The logbook showed us a large number of guests also for this last season, proving that the bivouac is a very sought-after destination!
The bivouac is in excellent health and has now been cleaned up perfectly.
We also replaced the original mattresses with the new model realized for LEAPrus in Caucasus, much more comfortable and durable. Seeing is believing!
