Route Description


From Forclaz or La Sage, walkup in direction of the collar of the Torrent, clearly shown by the panels of pedestrian tourism.
It is also possible to go up by car relatively high on the mountain pasture, and you win approximately two hours at two hours and half of walk.
From the collar follow the normal route coming from Moiry on a not marked path in Northern direction which more or less follows the wire of the edge until the top.

1 h from the collar to the summit

The descent is done by the same route.

Essential Gear


Crampons if snow remains after the Torrent collar.
