A loop through the Serre-Brion and Morta passes starting from Bourgmenu
distance 12.69km Vertical gain +1312m Vertical drop -1312m duration 6h45 Very difficult Very difficult
Starting point Starting point in Saint-Andéol (Isère) - 38 - Isère

A vertiginous and rarely-taken loop, where you come across ibexes and chamois at every hairpin bend. Make sure you always have a helmet (ibexes love to send stones flying), as well as crampons and an ice axe until late in the season, as névés remain in place fairly long within the steep Serre-Brion couloir. It is best to start your hike early in the morning so that snow is still hard when reaching this couloir.
