Approach


Start point is Hamlet Le Flon (Miex), on the road to Tanay at 7-8 km from Vouvry (exit Aigle highway Lausanne - Sion)

Route Description


From the park, walk down 50 meters and follow the little road on the tar during 2 km which leads to the vallon de la Jeur over Crosette, Plan de l'Ortie, Palatieu and Verne, 1415 m. Follow the trail until the last chalet. A path leads with some bends to Verne collar, 1815 m ( 2 h 30)

Follow the path on the right over the grassy slopes to chalet de la Calaz, 2064 m. Cross on the left a steep slope and reach a good terrasse just before the collar (sometimes named pas de Chaudin) opened at the east of the Cornettes de Bise. From here, the summit is easy to reach in 20 minutes (1 h 30 to 2 h from Verne collar).

Come back to pas de Chaudin.Take the path on the north face to the "Chaux du Milieu" plateau strewn with big rocks (2100 m). If snowfields remain here (begin july), crampons can be useful. Join on the left the Au valley eand the hamlet of Tanay. A liitle path avoids the trail and leads back to le Flon.


Essential Gear


Telescopic sticks.
Crampons for the Chaux du Milieu at the beginning of the season.
