Your Shot member Arina Andryeyeva submitted this shot, captured at 13,120 feet (4,000 meters), of Mont Blanc’s snowy ridge and peak ascending into the cloud cover. “The temperature before climbing was around 20°C [68°F],” Andryeyeva writes. “After [we made] it almost to the very top, the temperature dropped to minus 1°C [30°F].”
