This itinerary goes along the the middle part of the Lys Glacier. Normally a good foot trail is going all the way up; this tour is suitable for those regular hikers who want to make a first experience at this altitude and on this kind of terrain where basic rules of mountaineering (like walking in a rope team along a glacier) are necessary.

Start with the cable car in direction of P.ta Indren, from there you walk in direction of the Roccette where some fixed rope help to go over some rocky steps. On top of them the glacier starts and it's time to take off the rope and the crampons. The way is always easy until the top... after a steeper part suddenly the slope gets flat and in few more meters you are on the top.
