How to get there

Aosta Ovest highway exit. Follow the directions for Courmayeur to Arvier. Turn left for Valgrisenche to La Rognettaz.

Punta d’Archeboc or Ormelune as almost everybody mistakably calls it, has a great mountaineering ski route, varied and satisfying. We recommend you take this tour after April when the road is open to Usellière. Otherwise calculate an extra 40 minutes from Bonne.


Description of the route

Park your car at the beginning of the farm road that leads to Col du Mont (sign).
Follow the road that leads to the Grand Alp chalet. Cross the stream (often over the metallic beams) and follow the main valley towards Col du Mont, highly visible at the end of the valley. When the peaks on the left are gentler, climb leaving a “Half Pipe” groove on your right. Continue climbing a bit to your left until you reach the upper plateaus. Cross them to the right passing to altitude 2,988 m. Follow the border ridge and keep climbing as far as you can with your skis. Continue on foot on the ridge and then on the West side along the steep but short groove that leads to the summit.
Descent down the upward itinerary.
