How to get there
Aosta East motorway exit; head in the direction of the Great St. Bernard Tunnel, as far as the square at the Crevacol ski-lift facilities.
Very easy excursion, short and very popular, ideal as a start of season excursion. Be aware of the danger of avalanches in the last stretch before the pass.
Description of the route
Park your car in the square at the Crevacol ski-lift facilities and follow the road that passes under the viaduct then pass on the left side of the river. Follow the estate road for a stretch, then head up to the left as far as an Alpine Hut and pick up the inter-estate road. Follow it, cutting across it in certain parts along pretty slopes as far as the Bois Bas mountain pasture. After a while, cross over to the left between the larches and climb up the vast valley in the direction of the pass with a non-obligatory route.
Descend the upward itinerary.
