I'm going on a new mountaineering expedition.

I've decided that I'm going to climb the highest mountain in Europe this fall. The mountain is called Mont Blanc, and it is the tallest mountain in the Alps on the border of Italy, France, and Switzerland. Kilimanjaro is going to be a test run, and if it goes well, I'll hit Mont Blanc when I get to Europe. Mont Blanc is shorter than Kili too, so I should be able to handle it (although unlike Kili, on Mont Blanc I'll have to use crampons to get up the snow and ice).
