Today you may be walking past a few different areas where cows graze. Although generally very docile and used to walkers, keep your distance and never turn your back on a cow that is behaving strangely or aggressive. Be particularly vigilant around cows with calves.
This route is NOT SUITABLE for poor weather conditions. Watch out for falling rocks and keep your distance from other walkers. At the start of the season, there may still be snow on this section of the route.
The path to the ridge is very exposed. A good head for heights and sure-footedness are essential!
Always allow plenty of time for your hike. The walking times indicated do not include breaks. Rest and photo breaks must be added to the times indicated.
Check the latest weather information and be on the lookout for changes in the weather. Storms can develop rapidly in the Alps.
Do not leave the marked hiking trails.
