mont blanc

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'french peak' is the definition.
'mont blanc' can be an answer for 'peak' (Mont Blanc is an example). I'm not sure about the 'french' bit.

'lt mcnoban lost' is the wordplay.
'lost' is an anagram indicator.
'ltmcnoban' is an anagram of 'MONT BLANC'.

'in' acts as a link.
