A trail for anyone who enjoys a physical challenge and the solitude of the mountains. Few attempt this trail in winter due to the challenging alpine terrain. Two adjacent summits offer spectacular panoramic views (see variants).
Variant A: Ascent to Haute Combe (an extra 45 minutes / an additional 189 metres of altitude)
Variant B: Ascent to Dent de Combette (an extra 60 minutes / an additional 250 metres of altitude).
This trail is suitable only for experienced snowshoers who have the necessary skills to assess the avalanche risk and to respond appropriately to the dangers of a mountain environment.
The trail should be attempted only from early spring when the section leading to the Doigt du Combette is snowfree. Snowshoers are advised to pack an ice-pick.
