    Tête de la Tronche (Val Ferret)
    Description

    The route over the Tête de la Tronche high above Courmayeur is the «frilly» version of the legendary route on the Balcon de Ferret. The centrepiece is the sensational trail over the ridge of Mont de la Saxe.

    Initially you climb from Entrèves on the mountain road in the valley floor of the sensationally beautiful Val Ferret almost to the end of the valley. At Greuvetta turn right and push the bike to Alp Arnouva, 200 metres up the hill. Here, the famous single trail on the Balcon de Ferret is reached, and this one now follows out of the valley always in the face of the Grandes Jorasses and Mont Blanc. After the Alp Sécheron, leave the original route of the Balcon de Ferret and climb on the left hand side up the trail to the Tsa de Sécheron. From now on, the bike is on the shoulders, it is 300 metres in altitude via Col Sapin to the summit of the Tête de la Tronche. The scenery up here (with views of Mont Blanc and Grandes Jorasses) is as sensational as the upcoming single trail downhill. This always follows the ridge, is incomparable fun and ends at Rifugio Bertone. Now the character of the tour changes again: The final section down to Courmayeur is a tricky, rocky pathand a wonderful completion of this super tour.

    Alternativen: It is also possible to ascend above the Refugio Bonatti and in front of the Col Sapin the Pas entre deux Sauts. This results in some additional altitude, but also an additional singletrack downhill.
