[edit] Approach route

Less than 1 km south of Zinal the road ends at the bridge over the Navisence river (1675m) (parking space available). Continue the path that follows the west side of the river, passing the Vichiesso chalet (1862m) to reach and cross the bridges at 1907m. The path now turns N to pass Pt. 2,082m before reaching a stream below Louchelet. Turn R here and, after passing a small tarn, head ESE and then E below the Pt. Ar Pitetta to the hut. (4-5h)

An alternative and more exciting start to the route follows the E bank of the Navisence river to the bridge at 1731m. Just beyond this the path climbs the hillside on the L. Traverse R to some rocks marked, in blue, 'Pas de Chasseur'. Climb the rocks making ample use of the fixed chains and then follow the continuation path through the woods to join the route described above. (4h)

I find Skype to be one of the best ways to communicate with pepole. I just got Skype right before I came to college. Getting Skype was one of the easiest and smartest moves I made before coming to college. I can talk to my friends who are attending different universities as well as friends and family back home. Skype allows you to video chat and see pepole face to face. You can also chat or just call them without using the video.Skype is a great way to stay in touch with pepole and is better than calling or texting because you get to see the person you are contacting’s face. Skype’s only let down I could possibly see is the loss of connection. This happens all the time in technology though. I use Skype almost every day and I think it is amazing!
