Aiguille de Toule: W Face

A short approach makes it a good beginners route


From the Torino hut go NW to the col des Flambeaux.
Descend to the W and contour under the N face, (Same a the approach route for the Aiguilles d'Entrèves).


Either cross the bergschrund and head directly up to a little saddle on the crest of the NW ridge, and along this to the summit,
or go higher towards the col and traverse in from the right, under some rocks to reach the same saddle, less steep, normal choice if combined with the traverse of the Aig d'Entreves.


Either by the same route or by the E face, normal route (PD-).
