La Tournette

23 July 2005 | by Pierre-Alexandre

La Tournette is a superb spot to contemplate all the summits above Lake Annecy as well as the Aravis Range and the Mont Blanc Massif, sometimes hidden by the clouds when it's hot. This route is somewhat technical in its final part, as many passages are equipped with cables and
