Great 3000m mountains in the Alps

In Europe for most people the 4000 m peaks are more attractive.
But there are some really great 3000 m peaks which are really great!

This is an album for this peaks which are not the highest but which belong to the most beautiful mountains in Europe.

This is my suggestion:
Grossglockner
Piz Palü
Eiger
Ortler
Königsspitze
Grosses Wiesbachhorn
Fletschhorn
La Grivola
La Meije
Piz Roseg
Piz Badile
Les Drus
Monte Pelmo
Hochgall
Aiguille de Triolet
Monte Viso
Bietschhorn
Mont Pelvoux
Ailefroide
Marmolada
Grosse Zinne

If you have another mountain where you think that it MUST be also specified, let me know.

Bietschhorn !

.. is IMHO the most interesting 3000m-mountain of the alps and must occur in this list!

Re: Bietschhorn !

the list of mountains is growing longer and longer. Pictures are sorted by votes and not geography. Therefore I would like better to have only one picture for each mountain.

Re: Bietschhorn !

I didn´t think that there is such a response to this page.
So first I added different beautiful pictures of 1 mountain.
I try to pick the most beautiful pictures of each mountain in the next days and will delete some others.

A nice collection of 3000er! 10+

Great means in that case famous?

Re: Alps

Good idea!

But I don't think that the list is correct. It looks like the highest 3000ers have more chance to be on the list. Famous mountains are very often high, but not always. I think that the Fletschhorn and the Aiguille Triolet not belong on this list. They are high, but really famous? I think there are a lot 3000ers that are lower but more famous (like: Piz Buin, Marmolada, Dent du Midi, Titlis and Adamello?)

It will be very difficult to make such a list. Everyone has a different opinion on "famous mountains".

Don't get me wrong, I really like this album :-)

Greetz, Jurgen
