Thanks to Charles Catherin for adding this peak.
Cime du Glas is the highest peak of the French national park of Mercantour .From Nice, go to the Vȳubie valley .Once in the little town of Saint Martin Vȳubie, take the little route to the Madone de Fenestre, a sanctuary at 2000 meters, which is the starting point of the ascent. There is a hut of the Club Alpin Fran?is where you can sleep and eat. The normal way
requires a basic experience of climbing, but I strongly suggest to cross the ridges, which demands some more experience of using a rope .The sight from the summit is wonderful, from the North of the Alps (Matterhorn, Monte Rosa), the Monte Viso to the Mediterranean sea.
