TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY ANTOINE AGASSE — This photo taken on July 1, 2013 in the mountains of Mont-Blanc, eastern France, shows the newly-opened Gouter mountain hut. Ultra-modern and environmentally friendly, the new Gouter mountain hut, at 3835 metres (12,582 ft), has since the end of June welcomed thousands of people pretending to reach the summit of Mont-Blanc, but its exceptional comfort and welcoming service has already drawn controversy among mountaineerers.
