In Google’s quest to map the entire world with their street view technology to allow people sat at their computers to see the far ends of the globe, their latest achievement is mapping Mount Blanc.
It’s called the Monarch of Mountains and is one of Europe’s highest peaks, surrounded by cloud and snowfields, and now you can get a 360-degree look at Mount Blanc right in Google Maps.

The footage was captured whilst running the summit with Kilian Jornet, who holds the record for ascending and descending Mount Blanc in just 4 hours 57 minutes. Also accompanying the team were alpine-climber Ueli Steck, Laetitia Roux, and famed guide Patrick Gabarrou.
