We leave the car at the resort's parking lot and take the gondola to climb at 9.00.
Once we go to the right, follow an unmarked path that leads to the other side of the mountain. We go up the valley until we reach the foot of the road.
We started walking up and at 12.00 we reached the point where the edge begins.

Following the obvious rock edge we reached the summit at 3 p.m. In the last meters the ridge disappears and the path becomes a snow-covered ramp. Once above we do not have visibility, so we have to guide with a map and compass to make the way back to find the ski resort. VERY ACCOUNT WITH THE CORNISES! You need to try to follow the plateau through the center.

Once we find the ski resort we follow the lifts down below. The return to the gondola is obvious.
We arrived at the gondola at 17.30 and we went down to the car.

We leave the car at the resort's parking lot and take the gondola at 9.00.
Once we get to the top we go to the right and follow an unmarked path that leads to the west side of the mountain. We go up the valley until we reach the base of the route.
We walk up a bit and at 12.00 we reached the point where the ridge begins.

Following the obvious rock ridge we reach the summit at 3pm. In the last meters the ridge disappears and the path becomes a snow-covered slope. At the summit we do not have visibility, so we have to advance with map and compass all the way back to find the ski resort. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH CORNICES! You need to try to follow the plateau through the center.

Once we find the ski resort we follow the ski lifts down. Then the return to the gondola is obvious.
We arrive at the gondola at 17.30 and we go down to the car.
