Description of the route

From Courmayeur, take the road that leads to the village of Villair Superiore, at the entrance to Val Sapin. From here, the road continues to climb then becomes a dirt road and crosses the Tsapy stream. The itinerary continues, initially along the paved road and sometimes along the path, until it reaches the start of the path on the left, which goes up the slope beneath Bertone refuge, which is covered in a thick wood of conifers. At a crossroad beyond the refuge, ignore AV1 on the left, and take itinerary 42 on the right, which gently leads to the grassy plateau of Mont de la Saxe. This leads you to another crossroad. Take the path on the left (not signposted), which soon takes you to the top of Testa Bernarda.
