One of the most beautiful mountains of the Alps with scenic view on the Monts Blanc. Great climbing! Enjoy fantastic rock climbing in front of the highest european peak; the Mont Blanc. World famous mountains landscape. The Dent du Geant is one of the most beautiful peak of the Alps. Perfect for lazy mountaineers as there's a cable-car (Helbronner cable-car form La Palud, Aosta valley, Italy, near Courmayeur) that let you at 3462 meters, a huge part of the way done! Immediately after leaving the cable-car the show is absolutely breathtaking: Grand Capucin, Dent du Geant, Mont Blanc, Aiguille du Midi. Huge red rocks emerge from the perfectly white glacier under the blue sky. Just breathtaking and it's just the beginning... Access to the final climbing part is dangerous, risk of stones fall and crevasses.
