This is the easier route to climb Turon but if you have a little of experience in easy rock-climbing you can join the climb with the Pic de Trois Conseillers (F.+) in the same day.

Getting There

Refuge de la Glère

See the main page to approach to Refuge de la Glère the previous day.

Route Description

Lac det Mail

We begin in Refuge de la Glère (2.150m) following the signals to Refuge Packe and Lacs de Néouvielle until the cross path in the hillside. We turn to left following the direction to Lacs de Néouvielle. We reach the big lake of Mail (2.340m) and we turn to right (S.) across a path near of the lake. The path goes across another two lakes, the Lacs d’Estalat. After the last lake (2.420m) we see the channel between the walls walking to the Coume Estrète, a small valley. In this valley remains the snow in the first weeks of summer (June-July) but you can walk without crampons generally. In the exit of the valley we reach the col de Coume de l'ours (2.747m). We turn to left (E.) walking the long but easy ramp to the summit among a lot of stones following the cairns.

Essential Gear

In May-June it's necessary the use of crampons and ice-axe in the coume Estrete. In July in a sunny day only early in the morning the snow is hard, but the slope is soft and the people generally climb without crampons, even the trekkers.
