Les Confins - Tête Pelouse - Combe du Grand Crêt
7.5 km 1040 m 1040 m
départ Le Grand-Bornand (74)
Tête Pelouse is the object of a superb hike that will make you discover the Aravis Range and the beautiful Valley of Confins. Not so far from the Lac and Pointe de Tardevant, the itinerary reaches a rocky summit not very frequented that offers an unforgettable point of view. The path goes through the alpine pastures of the combe of Bella Cha. The descent, more physical but also more interesting in my opinion, passes through the combe du Grand Crêt. The hike is classified difficult because of the elevation gain, the length, and the total absence of signage. The last 100 meters (optional) of the ascent of the Tête Pelouse require some vigilance at the descent as the ground is rocky and easily hidden under the feet. There’s a little-exposed passage just before descending in the combe of Grand Crêt, which can impress people who have a fear of heights.
