From Pila to refuge Alpe Arbole (first part by chair-lift, then 1h'30 by walk through a pass, evident signals on the path), situated near a nice lake. From the refuge take the left side of the lake.

Walk until a moraine and go up on it. You will arrive on the Emilius ridge that leads to the peak (be carefull to the signals!).

Essential Gear

Hiking equipment, a rope if you want to be more sure on the ridge (not necessary if you are expert). In early or late season crampons for the ridge.
