“A tough switchbacking climb with access Refuge de la Loriaz and mountain top trails.”
— Tad Davis
Begin in the village of Les Rupes and head southwest. Stay left at the first intersection. Before long the trail will begin a long series of steep switchbacks. Eventually, the switchbacks will end and the trail will straighten somewhat. At the next intersection, stay left and begin the second series of switchbacks as treeline ends. The trail will end at the intersection with the Refuge de la Loriaz South
trail near the Refuge de la Loriaz dirt access road.
