Refuge Ricou

Turn-by-turn directions

Vanuit de refuge de Buffère loop je in zuid westelijke richting om daarna de niet te steile helling Noord westelijk op te stappen in open terrein. Op de Crête des Baudes staat een kruis. Vanop de crête hou je even rechts om de steilere flank richting noord west naar beneden te traverseren, oipgepast, enkele pittige passages, stapzekerheid verreist.

Door glooiend terrein en diepere sneeuw daal je af naar de Refuge Chardonnet net boven de boomgrens. Dan volg je de goed gemarkeerde trail richting dal (Vallée de la Clarée) mis de afslag naar de pont de Couvercle niet. Eens over de brug ga je naar de asfaltweg en sla je al snel het pad met richtingsaanwijzers naar Refuge Ricou in. Dan verder over besneeuwd pad tot de refuge Ricou.
