Thanks to Gianni Perelli Ercolini for adding this peak.
Dent du Géant is a very impressive and famous tower with an exciting 360 degree overwiew on Mont Blanc massive. Due to the presence of fixed rope, during summer time, the peak it's a little bit crowded. Some interesting climbing route on West and South face.
