Please plan on using a camlback or water bottle.
From "Junior" category
Starting from the paragliding landing field the route climbs steadily towards the upper valley, progressively passing through the hamlets of "les Bois" and Lavancher before reaching Argentière (1250m).
In Argentière you continue towards Le Planet (the same itinerary as the Marathon).
You will arrive in the hamlet of Tré le Champ, a pretty village found right before the Col des Montets, from where you will then go via the Balcon Sud.
After crossing the magnificent Charlanon comb (1812m) the climb is gentle at first.
The gradient increases until just before the arrival at Planpraz (2050 m) giving one of the most beautiful views of the Mont-Blanc.
