Fabulous views over the Chamonix and Vallorcine valleys. Wonderful panorama
of Mont-Blanc and of le Tour Glacier, le Buet and les Perrons in particular.
On the right bank of the river Arve, near the bridge, follow the path up the hill.
When you come to a junction, take the right-hand fork into the forest which soon
thins out. Above the Tete de la Jorette, the path winds upwards until it reaches
the Pierre-Fendue junction (1 950 m). From here follow the path to the right past
the avalanche barriers and the disused slate quarries to the ridge, which will lead
you to the top of l’Aiguillette.
Other itinerarie available from Col des Posettes at the arrival of Vallorcine cable-car.
