Description of the route

From the state road for Gran San Bernardo, take the road that leads to Buthier and leave the car in the square at Buthier Gorrey (1375 m). Take the route which soon comes to Clemencey, where the trail joins routes 3 and 3A. Continue up until you reach Alpe Mendey (1547 m). Near the residential area, take route 3, which goes into the woods. You soon come to the private road for Alpe Chez-Tognette, which you leave after a few metres to take the path that leads up alongside the pastures of Grangette. When you get to a crossroad, c. 1715 m, keep to the right-hand branch, which goes past Alpe Meriau Damon (1740 m), and up Alpe Collet (1919 m). From here, leave the forest track, and continue in the woods, until you come to the dirt road for Alpe Tza de Chaligne. Follow this road briefly, then leave it for the path on the right which leaves the woods, just after this point. Go up to Cresta Tardiva, towards an antenna tower that is clearly visible from below, until you come to the large saddle of Col Tardiva (2410 m). Continue on the same itinerary, veering left until you reach Punta Chaligne, marked by two large crosses (2607 m).
