The bivouac is dedicated to the memory of Luciano Gratton, a mountaineer from Cogne who died in 1973.
From Crétaz, a hamlet on the road to Cogne, cross the Grand’Eyvia River and the Valnontey River and take path no. 25 which goes up to the pastures of Les Ors Dessous et Dessus.
From here, in just a short time you come to a junction, where, ignoring path 25 on the left, take route 25C which leads first to the National Park guard’s lodge, and then to another bifurcation.
Now continue along path 26 on the left until you come to the pasture of Pousset Dessus, before reaching Col Pousset and the Gratton bivouac.
Equipment: blankets, mattresses.
