We completed what we set out to do and that was to complete La Marmotte and we did it! We started at 7am with slight drizzle and thunderstorms on the way but thankfully it cleared and we had a day of sun shine. It took us 3 hours to climb Col Du Glandon, 2 hours to climb to Col Du Telegraph. At this point we had done 70 miles. It was getting tough but the only way back to our start point was to keep going. We finally finished with completing Col Du Gaulibier in 3 hours. After this we had a 15 mile down hill run to our finishing point. 12,500ft of climbing completed, 5500 calories burnt. Some low points but we made it after 13 hours!
