Ascent Trip Report

Very long and very tiring journey of this massif, on the East side of Mont Cenis pass. Linking 10 peaks, all higher than 3000 m, in one trek is not something you'll forget (or you'll want to repeat, anyway). At least a couple of really delicate steps, which require a really steady foot.
