As we pulled up onto the 12,674-foot Aiguille de Gouter just above the hut, we saw a stunning sight. The horde ahead of us snaked single file up the broad slope to the higher Dome de Gouter. Hundreds of lights bobbed to an unseen pulse, and the procession created a curved, white-light symphony through the blackness. It felt to me like an appropriate requiem for all the dead climbers. The life force moving up the mountain was a formidable, poignant prayer from the living.
