This hike intended for rather seasoned walkers, will take you along a beautiful ridge path joining several peaks of the Aravis: the Tête des Annes (1869 m) first, then the Pointe des Delevrets (1966 m) and the Col de l'Oulettaz under the Pointe de Rouelletaz (2077 m).

Between Grand-Bornand and Le Reposoir, the route offers superb views of the two valleys that stretch before your eyes.

The loop then continues in a mineral universe, between lapiaz and pierriers, the rocks form natural steps and will allow you to continue your ascent. Arrived at the crossroads of Mont Pelés, you are not far from the goal of the day.

Indeed, along this path, you will reach the Refuge de la Pointe Percée. Housed on a large stretch of lapiaz, it is the highlight of the hike and marks the border towards mountaineering since it is at the start of several access roads to the top of the Pointe Percée.

A real promontory, the view of the Mont Blanc, Bargy and Aravis mountains is breathtaking and will reward your efforts.
