The highest peak in western Europe.

Approach notes

Mi Matt G, It might be an idea to put a 'buttress divider' into the routes list to distinguish between the Italian and French sides of Mont Blanc. It seems strange to find The CP Freney and peuterey Integrale listed under Haute Savoie! Jon de Montjoye
