The bivouac is dedicated to the memory of the partisan soldier Ernesto Ménabreaz.
Take the estate road for the Laures Valley, taking a couple of shortcuts until you reach the end where there is a clearing close to the alpine hut. Take the path running between the remains that head into the fairly thick forest and bordering on Larp at 1,310m. Pass by the abandoned lodges on the mountain pasture, turn right and continue upwards until you come to a ravine. Pass the Alp Vieille at 1,623m and climb up steep ground with protruding rocks; cross the river on the log bridge just before Alp Le Tramail.
After crossing the river on another 2 occasions, the slopes become more open and the path winds through bushes, until you come to some writing on a rock “fontana nera 2.225”. Following an arrow, leave the main path that leads to the river, turn right and for part of the path, head back up the steep slope until you reach a rocky crag, turn right and continue to climb up among the rocks.
After a diagonal crossing, cross the water one more time and climb up until you come to the top of the crag, from where the path with different gradient changes, comes to the bivouac.
Equipment: water, blankets, gas stove, outside toilets, electricity, fountain, pic-nic tables.
