The East face
The East face of Mont-Blanc, also called Brenva face, is mostly covered by very steep snow and ice. A 1400 meter high face, it is bordered on the left by the Aiguille Noire and Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey (which form the begining of the Peutery ridge), and on the right by Mont Maudit.
