The route crosses wide alpine pastures with numerous lakes, where the slopes are never too steep. On the other hand, the final ascent over the often windswept NNE ridge requires special attention. Thanks to the N slope exposure, the snow conditions are often excellent. Cabane Brunet is along the route and can serve as a stopover.
