The bivouac, inaugurated on 4th August 1984, is dedicated to Ulrich Lateltin (1899-1956), a carpenter from Gressoney-Saint-Jean. In 1950, he had the idea of building a mountain hut near Testa Grigia.

Once you pass the houses in Gressoney-Saint Jean you will come to the village of Tschemenoal, where the path starts and running for a short stretch parallel to the main road.
Once you come to a clearing on the left, take the mule track through the forest until you come to the village of Gròsso Albezò (Alpenzù Grande). From there carry along a diagonal path on the right and you will come to the Mòntél pasture home. From here carry on through the forest north eastwards until you reach Loasche pasture home.
Once you pass Obrò Loasche houses located on the right, you will reach a river and here the path goes along the valley until you come to Col Pinter. From the pass, carry northwards and after a series of hairpin bends you will find yourself between Monte Pinter and the Testa Grigia. Keeping to the right you will come to the bivouac.
