Thanks to Agnese for adding this peak.
Tête nord des Fours is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif in the Graian Alps. It can be reached from Notre Dame de la Gorge (1190 m.) where there’s a large car parking just before the church, walking south on a trail of the tour of Mont Blanc to the Refuge de la Balme (1706 m.), and then to Col du Bonhomme (2329 m.). From here one continues to Col de la Croix du Bonhomme (2408 m.) and then climbs north to the summit. Snow fields can still be present in late Summer all along the trail from the Refuge to the summit. From the summit views of the Beaufortain massif to the west and of the Mont Blanc massif. On the summit there is a post with a map of the surrounding peaks.
