This seemingly inaccessible rocky spur offers an excellent view due to its freestanding position in the bend of the Rhone valley. The mountain is surprisingly easy to reach via the southeast flank (WS+).

Little ascent and a lot of descent – even if the Rhone Valley is already green with spring. The mountain railways in Ovronnaz make it possible. The tour is a good option for early spring, because thanks to the ski lifts you can start the tour at 2166 metres above sea level and ski down the artificial snow slope to the valley station. There is a ski tour ticket adapted to the tour for CHF 21, which allows the use of three lifts. There are several options for the ascent and descent. The tour is understandably popular, and in good weather the mountain is very busy.
