Where were you when? Mont Blanc

It's big, it's white but it's not Chris's beard, it's the  highest mountain in the Alps, Western Europe, and the European Union so is quite literally is right up there in the mountain world.  It rises 4,810.45 m (15,782 ft) above sea level and is ranked 11th in the world in topographic prominence. It is also sometimes known as La Dame blanche (French for "the White Lady") or Il Bianco (Italian for "the White One").

All fascinating facts (thanks Wikipedia) but what, you are asking, are the scores?

1. The Location - 4.0 (Pretty good, stuck half way up a mountain, great view but once again, no obvious signage.)

2. The Pose - 4.0 (Suitably impressive look of pointless grandeur whilst perched on skis)

3. The X-Factor - 3.5 - (the spectacular view and dramatic pose plus the impressive facts)

Making 11.5 - making this the highest scoring entry from someone standing on long poles whilst looking alarmingly likely to catch a cold - can you beat this?
