Description

Grand Combin is a great snowy mass, located in the far west of the Pennine Alps, just north of the Italian border. It is approached through beautiful solitary Alpine valleys. In addition to the main summit, Grand Combin has a second and smaller summit appropriately called Petit Combin (12,047 ft.), located three miles northwest.
