MONT BLANC DU TACUL (4,248 m) is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif of the French Alps situated midway between the Aiguille du Midi
Aiguille du Midi
and Mont Blanc .

The official first ascent of Mont Blanc du Tacul was by a guideless party comprising Charles Hudson , Edward John Stevenson, Christopher and James Grenville Smith, E. S. Kennedy , Charles Ainslie and G. C. Joad on 8 August 1855. However, Courmayeur guides may have already ascended the peak during their attempts in 1854 and 1855 to force a way up Mont Blanc from the Italian side.
