Description

A fine companion route to the Carro Blanc, also starting from Le Chal, but a little steeper, and finishing higher up the valley. From behind the restaurant, head directly down gentle open slopes into the main bowl. As the stream bed start to become visible, stay above that on the right bank until the valley bottom flattens out. Cross the stream and now follow the left bank until you pass some small huts and come to the track heading right to Nancroix. Bear left here towards the edge of the main valley, and here traverse leftwards across a fairly steep slope, then pick a line through the trees to finish in the hamlet of Beaupraz.
