Autumn, Summer, Spring


Near the bridge over the Arve on the right bank, take the path facing the slope. He separates
in two: go to the right in a small forest which clears up quickly. Above the Tête de la Jorette, by many switchbacks, the path joins the Pierre-Fendue crossing (1 m): climb to the right, notice the avalanche barriers, reach the abandoned slate quarries, then the ridge which leads at Aiguillette.

Another possible route from the Col des Posettes to the arrival of the Vallorcine cable car. Pay attention to the opening dates!
