Modane
L'Orgère - Maurienne Tourisme

This ascent allows access to one of the "doors" of the Vanoise National Park. The ascent is done in forest and leads to a valley dominated by the aiguille d'Oran. Refreshments and meal possible at the Orgère refuge.

Description

From Modane, go through Saint-André and follow the direction of the Parc national de la Vanoise. The ascent is done in a remarkable forest before reaching the mountain pastures and the Orgère refuge.

The climb is quite difficult with many passages above 9%. However, some short resting places will allow you to recover. In spite of the difficulty, this climb is worth it because of the breathtaking panorama which will be offered to you at the top.

The condition of the road on this route is good, and its frequentation is low.
