#45: Climbing the Top of Mount Blanc in a Dress
The story of this Reddit user’s great-grandmother is nothing short of amazing. In 1942, during the German occupation of France, she climbed Mount Blanc – the highest peak in the Alps – while wearing a dress! This is a feat that even some of the most experienced mountaineers would find daunting, yet this brave woman accomplished it with elegance and grace.
The fact that she did it during a time of war and occupation adds an extra layer of significance to her achievement, as it shows her determination and strength of character in the face of adversity. The fact that the family still has pictures of this incredible feat serves as a testament to the impact that it had on the family and the pride they must feel in their ancestor’s incredible accomplishment.
