Mont Blanc and the Brevna Glacier (Expand pics)
Monte Bianco
My wife and I spent a week in Northern Italy at the end of July with four days spent in the Aosta region.
My wife isn't into too much walking but I did manage to get her up to 1600mtrs to see the Gran Paradiso,
(4061 mtrs ) from Cogne- admittedly we drove there in a car.On the third day I relinquished my credit card she went shopping and I headed for Courmayeur which is the town on the Italian side of Monte Bianco. I parked just outside the town and headed off on one of the marked trails which eventually brought me to the foot of the Brenva Glacier.The photo was taken at approx 1400 mtrs at the foot of the Glacier with from the left Mount Noir de Peuterey, Mont Blanc(in clouds),and the slope up to Aiguille de la Brenva. Aosta is a beautiful place with many well marked trails to explore and friendly welcoming people, I will return.

Westaston Hill: The top?
Barry 11 hours ago.
I think the highest point is likely about 175 metres in a WSW direction from the mast. I'm judging this from aerial photography and DTM which shows a rocky outcrop in a small forest clearing. DTM ...

Barranisky: Barniskea or Barniskey
Barry 11 hours ago.
Might be worth adding that Ballymoyle Hill might be more appropriate name for this height. Called that in Coillte records. Whilst Barranisky is spelt thus on OS six inch maps, note that Hall Nevil...
