Thanks to Dominic Lynn for adding this peak.
This beautiful mountain is one of the highest and most attractive in the Southern Alps. It stands on the French-Italian border next to the highest peak of the French Southern Alps, the Gelas (3143m). It can be climbed easily from the WNW side up the normal route (scramble), however the SW face is far more interesting with 400m of good climbing on nearly decent rock (some patches are very unstable). On a good day the views go from the Med all the way beyond Mont-Blanc.
