Description

A long approach gets rewarded with a great couloir and wild summit.

Start from Lillaz and follow the summer path (depending on snow conditions) to the end of the Valeille.

Before the Malvezzi Bivouac traverse over to the obvious couloir.

Skin and boot up the couloir.

From the ski depot at the top of the couloir follow the south ridge up to the summit: Easy climbing (some rock steps Grade III) bring crampons and an ice axe.
