Description of the route

The bivouac is situated beneath Testa Grigia.

From the main car park in Gressoney-Saint-Jean, cross the Lys stream to the right, over a large wooden bridge and then take the dirt road that leads to Tschemenoal. Cross the stream towards the left over another bridge, then go up about 300m on a paved road, until you come to the start of a path on the left. Climb up among the conifer woods, going past two waterfalls, until you reach the refuge of Alpenzù Grande. Cross the fields diagonally, until you come to Ondermontel pasture, Alpe Loasche and from here, climb up a steep slope to get to Col Pinter. Take route 6 and go up in a series of bends, amidst clods of grass, that lead to a short but insidious traverse and a crumbling gully. You next come to the crest, from where you are just a few minutes away from the bivouac.
Possible route also departing from Gressoney-la-Trinité.
