FATMAP difficulty grade
Utilising Le Tour’s lift system allows you to easily gain altitude, should you wish to avoid the initial climb, from here you begin the traverse to your first overnight stop, the Albert Premier hut, 2702m.
The path is slightly exposed in places and we may have some snow patches to cross early in the season.
Arriving early afternoon will allow groups to refresh their alpine skills ahead of the long trek, or just sit back and admire the view.
