FATMAP difficulty grade
You start the climb from the parking right after Les Pueys, following the road between the two chalets.
You start going up on the deforested valley, and around 1350 m, turn right from the main slope to a chalet located at the side of the road (La Chaux, 1542 m).
From there, via the W slopes, join the SW ridge and follow it to the antepeak (1850 m). Follow the easy but exposed ridge on foot to the summit (cross). From the top, you get several options to descend the beautiful W face of Teysachaux: either directly below the summit through one of the couloirs (30-35°/300m ; passages à 37°) or from the ridge. Ice axe and crampons recommended in case of bad conditions for the summit ridge.
