The Aiguille Blanche de Peuterey (4,112 m) is a mountain of the Mont Blanc massif in Italymarker. It is considered the most difficult and serious of the alpine 4000-m mountains.

There are three tops to the mountain:
  • Pointe Güssfeldt (4,112 m)
  • Pointe Seymour King (4,107 m)
  • Pointe Jones (4,104 m)

The highest point, Pointe Güssfeldt, was first climbed by Henry Seymour King with guides Emile Rey, Ambros Supersaxo and Aloys Anthamatten on 31 July 1885.

Together with its neighbour – the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey (3,773 m) – the Aiguille Blanche forms part of the Peuterey ridge that leads, via the summit of the Grand pilier d'Angle, to the summit of Mont Blancmarker. This ridge was first climbed via a couloir on the Brenva face by Paul Güssfeldt with Emile Rey, Christian Klucker and César Ollier on 15–19 August 1893 (the second ascent was a week later by Klucker and John Percy Farrar). The first ascent of the complete ridge including the Aiguille Noire de Peuterey (the Intégrale) was on 28–31 July 1934 by Adolf Göttner, Ludwig Schmaderer and Ferdinand Krobath.
