Sacré Blanc!

Mont Blanc double summit for returning KE client Robert Newsome
Mont Blanc summit

Robert Newsome, a retired credit risk manager from Baildon in West Yorkshire, has just succeeded in climbing Mont Blanc for a second time with KE Adventure.

He first successfully summited with us in 2013, however the view at the top was obscured by lots of cloud, so naturally Robert decided he must conquer Mont Blanc again in 2014 to capture the awesome Alpine panorama!

Robert succeeded and here is his long awaited photo!
