Previous News Post on Laurents summit:
Laurent has done it!!! He called me yesterday on his way back from realizing his dream, to snowkite up Mont Blanc with his Frenzy 06!
Benny as he is known by his friends is obviously stoked, his excitement was sooo cool to hear and we are over the moon for Laurent and this mega achievement
Laurent had to contend with crevasses, Seracs, serious altitude and the sheer exhaustion of climbing through these dangerous areas with his full kit and then snowkiting the possible sections of the face. Laurent made it just below the Summit to 4500m, as close as was safe enough to land his kite, our concerns of him attempting this was he would get blown clean off the tiny summit!
A full report will be following within the next day or two with sick pictures, an interview with Laurent and some video so keep checking back
Congratulations Laurent for being the 1st person in the world to snowkite up that awe inspiring mountain
Cheers Matt & The whole Ozone Team
