Grande Lui: Voie Normale

Ascentto the A Neuve Hut

From La Fouly cross the flat area towards the A Neuve valley.
Go up this broad valley until the glacier of the same name, then go diagonally right across a flat area towards the wide slopes which lead up to the A Neuve hut, 2735m.

Ascent2nd day

From the hut go back to the left to reach a little plateau.  Go up the large wall beyond and go leftwards over a snow hump to get to below the summit. Climb the last 100m on foot, (gully and frozen rocks.)  


Below the summit take the gully on its true right side of the summit (S4 sur 50m) then traverse to rejoin the glacier.
There are no 2 options:

Return by the ascent route By the A Neuve glacier : climb up to the col to the left of the Grande Lui. Go onto a large slope (~40°) to reach the A Neuve glacier (very crevassed). Chose a line through the seracs (usually best on the true left bank) until it is possible to go down the centre, (less crevasses.) Go back to the left to leave the glacier and rejoin the ascent route towards the hut at about 2300m.
