    The Glacier d’Argentière has its origin in the northwest flank of Mont Dolents and runs almost ten kilometers to the northwest towards Argentière. It is enclosed on both sides by two high mountain ranges, from whose steep flanks it is fed. Orographically on the left is the Aiguille de Triolet - Les Courtes - Les Droites - Aiguille Verte chain, which slopes down to the Glacier d’Argentière with its steep, icy north faces. Further north is the Aiguille des Grands Montets, whose east side carries the Glacier des Rognons, which flows into the Glacier d’Argentière. Orographically to the right of the Glacier d’Argentière runs the Aiguilles Rouges du Dolent - Tour Noir - Aiguille d’Argentière - Aiguille du Chardonnet chain, over which the French-Swiss border runs. The southwest slopes of this chain carry several smaller glaciers that flow into the Glacier d’Argentière. Further down the valley at about 2100 m, the Glacier d’Argentière breaks off and is interrupted by a steep rock step (see also the picture opposite). The last section, completely separated from the main glacier, extends up to around 1,600 m.
