Pointe d'Archeboc: Dalla Valgrisenche


Drive up Valgrisenche as far as Rognettaz (1993m), if possible.  If not, maybe at Usellières. Failing that, park at Bonne (1730m) and skin up the road, (4kms, 250m height gain)


Follow the track WSW to the buildings at Grand Alpage, circa 20m.  Go down to the left and cross the river by a little bridge.  Go up a little valley to the SW towards Pte Maurin and then at about 2750m trend to the right, (W then WNW) to reach the Ormelune glacier.  Continue until it is possible to reach the ridge to the W of the W summit of the Point Archeboc.  From here it is a short distance to the W summit (3228m)
