A French Pyramidal Peak

Near the Mer De Glace in Chamonix, France was this very tall peak and the scree slope. Now, I’m going to go all geological on you. This is an example of a pyramidal peak, formed when 3 or 4 corries (also known as cwms or cirques) all retreat to a single point… which is the peak. This is all glacial stuff so don’t worry if you don’t get it.

But it’s pretty isn’t it!
