Course not presenting a great difficulty. However, note, a passage with chain of about 2 meters. JD Huck did this route in the spring when there was still snow in some places. Therefore, trekking poles or an ice ax are not superfluous!

Also note that you are not obliged to descend by the same route and that you have the possibility of bypassing the Famelon tower (see the map and the second Trace GPX B file for descending by bypassing the tower).
