description

A short, easy route.

Approach

From the top of the cable car, follow the steps to the new refuge (3371m). There are 237 steps! N.B. due to all the construction work for the new cable car, a new path has been built between the top of the second leg of the old cable car and the "new" Torino hut. Access to the glacier is no longer possible along the metal stairs at the back of the hut. About a 100m before arriving at the hut take the track, (through a gate!) onto the glacier. Once on the Glacier du Géant, take the direction west. Pass under the N face of the Grand Flambeau, to reach the Col Oriental de Toule (East col).

Route

From here climb the face with mixed passages of rock and snow.

Descent

Descend by the same route

remarks

Can be combined with the W face route (AD-) to make a traverse.
Very accessible form the Torino Hut, e.g. in the evening

Sensitive areas
There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.
