Aiguille du Midi - 3,842 m

Local name: Aiguille du Midi - 3842 m

The summit was first conquered in 1818 by the Polish poet and mountaineer Antoni Malczewski, now it is easily accessible thanks to the cableway built in 1955. Under a mountain rising to 3,842 m above sea level runs a tunnel connecting France with Italy.
