Description

From the top of the Bochasses chair traverse immediately left off the Bochasses piste towards the obvious gap in the ridge (marked by hiking signposts). Follow the track left down into and then around the shallow bowl until you reach the trees and then choose your route down through the glades. There are some dense sections but it's possible to pick a route with well-spaced and some open glades. Once you hit piste Didier Defago follow it all the way to Morgins.
