Punta Baretti

Punta Baretti is a mountain 4013m high on the Italian side of Mont Blanc.

Punta Baretti is 4013m high and is one of the main ridges leading up from the Val Veny on the Italian side of Mont Blanc. The mountain is much steeper on the south side, compared to slopes over-looking Chamonix on the north side.  The base of Punta Baretti used to flanked by the Mont Blanc Glacier, but global warming has had a significant effect on glacier retreat. Climbing the ridge leading to the summit of Punta Baretti is a serious mountaineering expedition.
