Summary

Icefall complex on the right side of the Fournel river.

Description

The icefall complex located the furthermost into the valley.

Access issues inherited from L'Argentiére

Do not run over people enjoying a coffee in the little village of Argentiere! This will only cause access issues!

Approach

In wintertime, you can leave your car in the parking after the last houses of the valley (the actual spot might depend on snow conditions, and how far the local authorities will permit motorized access).

Where to stay

L'Argentière-La Bessée

Ethic inherited from France

Park where indicated, take care of the environment, buy the local guidebook when possible (this is one of the ways you can help local route setters), clean up your shoes before climbing, don't spray beta, be polite.
