Thanks to Terrill Thompson for adding this peak.
Aiguille de Bionnassay is a picturesque peak rising from Mont Blanc's western ridge. It has an impressive Northwest Face and North Wall. It can be climbed via a variety of routes from multiple directions, the normal route being its south ridge. The approach is beautiful, as is the view of Mont Blanc from the summit.
