HE’S DONE IT AGAIN! JASON BLACK REACHES SUMMIT OF MONT BLANC

first_imgJason on Mont Blanc todayEVEREST hero Jason Black has done it again – this time on top of Europe.The Letterkenny man and his team reached the top of Mont Blanc earlier today, one of the world’s toughest climbs.And that famous Donegal flag which has journeyed from Errigal to Everest was unfurled for the occasion….at 4,810 metres. Jason was joined on this incredible journey by three other Donegal men – Clive and Keith Davidson and Francie Gallagher.“The euphoria was amazing and to be with three great men from Donegal on the trip was incredible,” said Jason.And he revealed all four made the final ascent…with bellies full of Ready Brek!“We slowly made our way up and it was just specular, the sky was crystal clear and the stars so bright up here,” said Jason. The Davidsons and Francie“Clive took the lead as we left the Gouter refuge now nearing 3.30am with a near perfect slow and steady pace.“Two hours of hard climbing saw us round the eastern slopes of the Dome du Gouter with minimal stops every now and again to let the hard working lungs catch up with the legs, the lads were flying working hard step after step.“The lads were overwhelmed as they punched the sky with joy as they shared this magical moment. The views were unreal and spectacular, high above the clouds with great visibility.“Then as a surprise I pulled out pride of all the donegal (Mt Everest) summit flag as we basked in the joyful photos marking this life long memorable moment.”Great stuff!
