Super randonnée paysage à couper le souffle! Chemin parfois difficile entre rocher, cailloux instables et glacier. De préférence il faut être à la brèche à 16h grand Max pour re traverser le glacier avant qu’il ne re gèle. Bâtons fortement recommandés. Quelques marmottes en chemin.

First to Review

By far one of my favorite hikes in the area. Completed this hike in early July and there was still quite a bit of snow. We used snow spikes for the final ascend- many people did not have them and had a very hard time as the trail is very narrow and slippery. There is a waterfall that you need to cross and a bit of scramble up rocky sections - proper hiking boots are a must (saw a few people in running shoes) and trekking poles definitely help. Would not hesitate to do this hike again!
