Part 1: Funny Edge Route in a beautiful mountain atmosphere. Succession of short rocky climbs and walking parts on trails that offer beautiful views over the station and nearby ranges. A great walk to not underestimate.

Difficulty - AD +
Length - 550 M
Arrival Altitude - 1,950 M
Difference in height - 200M
Route + return Time - 4-5 hours
Best time of year - April to October

Part 2: varied and air route on big ochre and black slabs. A dizzying atmosphere all the way long with an unforgettable exit among strong overhangs.
As with all routes, passing through the top of the Grand Bec and its viewpoint is compulsary before getting down to Brouffier Lake.
