FATMAP difficulty grade
The Col Ferret gives access to a number of routes.
Skinning is the most sensible way to reach the col - read essential after snow - but occasionally snowboarders will have put a boot track in - which can make skinning tricky! There are two main ways to reach the Col Ferret.
Either a gentle skin from the Col des Gentianes direct to the col, or alternatively you can traverse in past the Refuge de Tortin.
Warning: beware of avalanches from the steep slopes of the Bec des Etagnes above you after fresh snow.
