Route details: Take the Chemin de la Combe (PDIPR signage) for about 200m from the car park by Alpaga chalet then branch off left over the little stream (yellow markings) and get bcak on the Meille route. After the chalets in Haute Meille, head north until you reach the Moilletaz chalets. PLEASE NOTE: Do not take this road in summer as there's a risk of avalanches.
