Mont Blanc - highest peak in the Alps and European Union

Mont Blanc - highest peak in the Alps and European Union

Its 4,810 m / 15.782 ft to the top give the Mont Blanc the distinction of being the highest mountain in the Alps and Western Europe (EU), being surpassed by mountains and the Elbrus (5,642 m) in the rest of the Old Continent. Its name, Monte Bianco in Italian, is due to the eternal snows that crown the summit. Sometimes the name "La dame blanche" The white Lady, is also used in French. It was first conquered in 1786. In 1860 an international treaty established the status of top to be shared by Italy and France. However, in both countries some continue to dispute the matter. The climb on the French side is smoother. Therefore seasoned climbers choose to climb the steep granite wall on the Italian side. There are different routes that match varying degrees of difficulty.
