The bivouac was built in 2006 by the Rotary Club of Aosta with the contribution of the Municipality of Fénis and the Borroz family who donated the ground. It is dedicated to the memory of Egidio Borroz, a mountaineer and city councilor from 1990 to 1995.
From Fénis follow the signs for Val Calvalité, the road climbs up to a small car park where nearby there is a sign “Welcome to Val Clavalité”. Park your car and take the downhill road heading down towards the nice plateau of Clavalité. From here you can go along the dirt road on the left or take the small road on the right that crosses the river on the bridge leading to the Celey houses. From here, carry on along a paved mule track that joins the dirt road after about 1h30. Carry on in the direction of Col D’Etsely, passing the mountain pasture of the same name and after a few hairpin bends, you will reach the bivouac.
Equipment: blankets, gas stove, wood stove with firewood, water, toilet.
Water and toilets are not available in winter because of frost. The solar panel for electricity in winter works partially, so bring a torch.
