MTB ride from Valpelline, across Champillon. When it gets steeper towards Fenetre Durand hiked to further to the summit. Great views to the swiss side and Grand Combin!
Normal route from Glassier, easy walk and nice view!
I arrived at the Grande Chermotane in the evening, spent the night there - I was all alone, and the weather and the light almost made it feel like a himalayan valley! - and went up the summit via Fenêtre de Durand at the crack of dawn. I arrived on top at 7:45 a.m. I was the only soul up there at that moment, and the view in the early morning light to the great peaks of the Pennine Alps as well as that impressive view over the Glacier d'Otemma made it an unforgettable experience. I went afterwards down to Glacier via By and hitched a lift to Aosta.
nice hike, great panorama
Did it again, this time even faster- 3hours 50 minutes from Glassier!
Easy hike up, very scenic. Took me 4hours 25 minutes from Glassier (1800 m. height gain).
bella montagna, gran panorama
bella e facile montagna, ottimo panorama
Nice and easy peak on a stormy day with perfectly blue sky. Nobody else around :-)
True first "summer" day of a rainy summer season. Perfect.
