description

Approach 1 h

From Liddes go in the direction of Vichereres and park at the corner 200m before the chairlift. Follow the forest road in the direction of the Combe d’A. 30 metres before the bridge (1673m) take a faint track to the right which joins another way leading to the blocks of Verdeuse (1797m). From there continue about 100m on a faint path and leave it to the left (cairns) in order to climb up to the foot of the route.
