Aiguille du Midi

The Aiguille du Midi (3,842 m) is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps. The name “Aiguille du Midi” translates literally as “Needle of the South”. In the brochure for its cable car the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc asserts it gets its name from the fact that it is to the south when viewed from in front of the church in Chamonix. Unfortunately they omitted to specify which church in Chamonix is the reference point. (Midi also means “Noon”)
