This shoulder of the Peuterey Ridge has two distinct faces rising above the Brenva glacier. The Northeast face, which contains a considerable number of routes in close proximity, offers some of the finest mixed climbing in the range. The East face is a huge rock wall and contains areas of good and bad granite, subjecting the routes to stonefall. An ascent of the Grand Pilier d'Angle is a serious proposition as the only logical way off is to continue over the summit of Mont Blanc by following the Peuterey Ridge.
