According to Mont Blanc Guides, bad weather ends up delaying roughly 33% of climbs.
Often people try to climb it alone even though they're not experienced enough to do so. This is when most accidents happen. You walk some narrow ridges and the sides of the mountain are very steep. A fall on Mont Blanc can be fatal. Stonefall, seracs, crevasses and avalanches are real dangers.
