Description of the route

From the village of Dondena, 2107 m above sea level, which is reached by car from Champorcher first on the paved road and then along the dirt road, continue on food along the route signposted AV2. The Dondena refuge stands 2185m above sea level in a flat basin. Here, leave the AV2 and take route 8 on the right. From here, cross the Ayasse over a wooden bridge, and follow the path as it winds unevenly upwards. When you come to a fork, ignore signpost 8, which goes left and keep straight on itinerary 8C. You soon come to the trail (mule track) that comes from Col Fénis (2530). From here, continue to the right on the path that winds up the grassy slopes of Mont Delà and reaches Col Fussy, 2910 m. Take route 5A on the right to reach the summit of Mont Glacier, 3185 m above sea level, the highest mountain surrounding the Champorcher valley and famous for its wonderful panoramas from the top.
