The Becca di Montandayné is a very good mountain. It’s few visit, unfortunately it don’t arrive to 4000 metres and the near Gran Paradiso is more famous. But it is very beautiful and it permit you to have a good and isolate climb. From the summit you take a good panorama on Tribolazione glacier, on Gran Paradiso summit, Apostoli group, Herbetet, Patry, Becca di Gay, and on all mountain of the Gran Paradiso group. The best way to arrive to the summit is the north east side and east wall route.
If you want climb the normal route, you must start to Aosta and take the Val Savarenche. Go into the valley until to a see the Gran Paradiso Camping. After a few km park your car in a small parking on the left and now you see the sing to Ref. Chabot.
If you want climb the North east side and East wall, start to Aosta and take on the left the road to Aymaivilles-Cogne. Drive until to Cogne and than take the road to Valnontey. You arrive to a big parking, park you car here.
There are no fees or permits that I am aware of. The whole region is part of the Parco Naturale del Gran Paradiso and thus you should take care of nature as usual within the boundaries of natural parks.
