Haute-Savoie, Geneva
On Sunday, October 17, if the weather is nice, with François, we planned to organize a sportive hike to Aouille de Criou (Aiguille de Criou) 2227 m, via Le Mont.

This summit is the final West point on the Triangle de Criou. It overlooks the Samoëns, Giffre Valley... and offers a breathtaking panorama.

"The triangle of Criou is a sort of natural symmetry of Fiz which is cut by the Giffre Valley. This part begins from Dent De Verreu in the Southeast and ends with Aouille de Criou in the West. The angle continues until the Pointe De Bellegarde ».

Elevation gain about 1480 m. Distance about 16 km. No major technical difficulty, but the last slope, about 350 m, is very steep. This is a hike demanding physical effort.

Maximum 12 experimented and very sporty hiker.
