Distance: 4 Km.Up/Downhill 700 m. - Up/Downhill 50 m.Time: 03:00 h.
Parking - Refugio Vittorio Emanuele II

Crossing the Mont Blanc tunnel, we enter the valley of Aosta. It is better to go for the national road and stay out of the highway as the first outlet is in Aosta town and then have to go back.
Following the national road we must take the exit marking Valsavarenche. Continue along this road to be rising as we enter a valley. We travel this road to the end, to where it ends at a large parking area, a campground, a restaurant-hotel and a house park Gran Paradiso.
We passed the information booth to our left and continue straight across a bridge. We entered the park Gran Paradiso, turn right and take a wide path parallel to the river, we left on our right. the road is marked with the number one. It is a path that has no loss because it is very strong and the many people who transitsgoes to the shelter.
Later, we left a large hut and a little later we left on our right a road crossing another bridge coming from the site. At this point we turn slightly to the left in a forest introducing us. Here the walk is over, as the road narrows and starts climbing.
The path describes numerous revolts as they gain altitude quickly. Now lean forward above starts our pretty atop the Tressenta and Ciarforon.
We left the zigzag path; smooths the road and we're heading for the tops. Finally, after a final ramp, we saw the curious refuge shaped hangar.

Refugio Vittorio Emanuele II - Gran Paradiso - Parking

We take the road marked with a sign over the main building and chapel. Turn left and we enter the sea of ??boulders. The path is marked with milestones, but there are milestones everywhere. We keep everything straight without winning just height. We left a bit of chaos block and came to a house that we left on our right. We continue on the same path, turning a little to the right and gaining height now decisively.
We overcome this slope out to a landing. We turn right to go heading towards the glacier valley. We go all the valley to reach the glacier to the right. To this end we have several options. We prefer to go up the left, quarries, a marked trail along the hillside.
We turn then a little to the left and continue to almost the bottom, following the path. Above the quarry had rocks,disappearing along the path but the path milestones.
As we near the end we have to turn right and cross the valley by large stones to get to the top of the glacier.
Having reached this point we get the equipment and roped us. The first ramp is quite steep, with a fairly strong footprint due to the amount of people climbing. Turn slightly to the right and then left to overcome a steep slope. Further up the slope levels off and into an area with lots of ice, but no cracks.
At this point though the route is still in theory front and goes through some rocks, we follow the rest of the roped crossing from right to left the glacier, then turn right and climb an average slope.

After this point we still landing. We continue our less steep road now turning a little to the left. From this point we can already observe nuestro goal.
Later awaits the last ramp before the summit. We turn left and climb up a steep slope. We left right an area of ??rocks that will accompany us throughout the slope.
At times the slope becomes acute. Finally, following the plan, we reached a colladito. The view across impressive and dizzying. As soon we get a few meters to reach the top. This is the sticking point. It is a stretch of mixed rock with little room for so many people. There is often a lot of hassle for others climbing down, the strings are mixed, no rush, etc.
The first part is just more comfortable. Then there is a bit flight portion leaving a wide although both sides fall horizontally slab. Missing last stretch to overcome before reaching the virgin. This is where most jams are formed. The rock is good and fitted.
Returned almost el suit.
