From this peak, you have a 360°panorama of the Swiss and French Alps. The trail to the summit can be very busy in season, but this climb is a good initiation to high altitude mountaineering.

From the Inn, take the road along the lake on the same side as the Dents-du-Midi. Leave the lake just after the point where the water flows down from Susanfe and cross a picturesque plateau, to Lanvouisset. The trail continues on the left bank of the pass. Passage equipped with chains. Once you reach Susanfe Pass, follow the trail on the Salanfe side. From the Col des Paresseux (where the lazy ones stop!), keep on climbing to the summit. Those who reach it will be rewarded by a breathtaking panorama! The return is along the same trail.
