Dangle while you sleep

The adventure that this post promises is not for everyone. Even seasoned climbers may wish to give it a pass. First of all, the destination is hard to get to. Number two, when you arrive you might just question your judgement when you see the accommodations. It goes without saying that you need to be fit for this adventure, or alternately, have your private helicopter primed and at the ready.

But, if and when you make it to your final destination, you’ll not only have humongous bragging rights, but you will also have stayed at one of the most exclusive lodging there is. Watch the video, below and take your time to decide if it’s for you.

Set 9,300 feet (2,835 meters) above sea level on the Frebouze Glacier in the Mont Blanc massif in Italy, Bivacco Gervasutti, named after the Turin-born Alpine climber Giusto Gervasutti, replaces a modest wooden shelter built in his memory in 1948. Mont Blanc, literally meaning “White Mountain,” has the highest peak in Europe and lies in a range that spans Italy and France.
