Brutal, that’s the word. Especially if you go further than the mount fox signalisation. Do it when no rain day before and on a very clear day. Very challenging also the first part on the forest, sometimes you have to climb with hands and it can slip, careful on the going down. But the view is very impressive. Bring lot of water and food

Super randonnée mais difficile, le point de vue sur le glacier est superbe ainsi que sur la vallée adjacente! Il faut être en forme et avoir des gants pour grimper. Cela peut être boueux donc à éviter après la pluie. 3h30 pour nous avec un super beau temps!

Amazing trail, had so much fun doing this! It got quite challenging as there is a lot of altitude. The climbing however was a lot of fun and the views at the summit were just great. 10/10 recommendation for everyone who likes a little challenge. Took us about 2h to get up there and around 1.30 on the return.
