Description

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.
