Begin this tour at the bottom of the Vallee de la Manche, there is a regular bus from Morzine to the foot of the snow line.
Follow the snow road up through Le Charny, past the Lac de Mines d'Or and continue heading for the Col de Cou.
As you exit the forest at 1,506m turn left towards the chalets at Beau Bornon (1,514m).
Climb the Lechere coomb and, at 1,720m turn to the north.
Cross over a ridge at 1,900m to access the Fornet coomb and ascend the steep couloir (42°) directly below the summit.
Once you are just underneath the summit, bear left up a snowy ramp to the ridge before making the final climb to the right onto the summit.
Descend by the same route.
This face needs a particularly cold and good snow year to come into condition for freeriding as it is warmed constantly throughout the day.
If you attempt this route be sure to head out very early morning.
The top ramp is often not in appropriate condition to complete.
