How to get there
Aosta Est highway exit. Follow the signs for Aosta and take the road on your left for Charvensod and Pila. Continue to Pila. Go through the tunnel under the buildings and leave your car in the large lot where the road ends.
Panoramic site over the Pila basin.
We suggest you climb when the lifts are closed (from mid-end of April). In other periods, take the shorter route using the Pila station lifts.
Remember that regional law prohibits climbing the ski slopes with seal skins. When the lifts are open, we recommend climbing before they start running. At other times, keep to the edge of the slopes to avoid skiers.
Description of the route
From Pila, 2,000 m, climb, keeping to the edge, the first part of the Leissè slope and turn left along the road that leads to the La Nouva chalet, 2,300 m. Keep to the centre of the valley heading for the Tza Sèche rise, 2,820 m, on beautiful slopes. Reach the rise after the steeper last segment. Turn left on the wide ridge to the Punta Valleta forepeak.
