Description

At the top of the Grand Col chair lift traverse lookers right under the mountain in front of you, called Aiguille de St.Espirit until you reach a large open gully on this face.

This is the hike up.

In hard snow conditions you may need crampons.

Climb this gully sticking to the left hand side and climb all the way to the top.

You then have a stunning, long and steep run back down the way you came up.

It stays in the shade in the mornings, so try and get there as early as possible. Touring gear isn't really needed for this one, but it will be a long boot pack back to the pistes.
