Testa del Rutor or Tête du Rutor (3,468m) is a mountain of the Graian Alps in Aosta Valley, north-western Italy. It is the highest summit of the Rutor-Léchaud Group, lying roughly between the Mont Blanc Massif and the Vanoise Massif. The huge Glacier del Rutor lies on its slopes. The mountain is rarely climbed except by the Alpini, who use the mountain for training.[2]
