Il Noeud de la Rayette

Sci alpinismo >> Il Noeud de la Rayette | Rifugio Crete SecheThis tour is recommended only in case of consolidated snow because it follows the long and steep slope situated over the Valley of Vertzan. The skiing is really amazing because the slope is really wide; it is not a couloir then even if it is quite steep. This tour is a bit less panoramic than the other peaks of the surroundings but the amazing descent will satisfy everyone.

Going up to the Noeud de la Rayette
This description will consider as a point of departure the Crête Sèche Hut even if, thanks to the very light materials available today, it is possible to deal with it in one day departing from Ru (1696 m). From the Hut (2410 m) put on your skins and follow the foot of Crête Sèche mountain in order to reach the Valley of Vertzan. Carry on in the middle of the Valley until reaching the steep slope which come down from Chardoney glacier. Carry on over the slope till it become more and more inclined (here begins the glacier). Carry on in the middle of the slope avoiding possible little avalanche. On the right you can see the snow saddle which links Cervo mountain with the Noeud de la Rayette. Depending on snow conditions it is possible to ascend in the middle of it or on the right side (towards Cervo mountain). After reaching the top carry on towards the cross placed over the watershed that leads towards Becca Rayette. The top is in fact where the cross is. Normally, during the descent you won't reach the hut but you will reach Alpe Berrier and then carry on till Ru.
For any information on snow conditions please feel free to contact Daniele to the Crête Sèche Hut.
