    Val Ferret Day 5

    Hiked the 14km (8.6 mi) from Courmayeur to the Italian Val Ferret. It's a steep climb but the rewarding views are worth it.

    Laced the hiking boots back up!
    Start the steep climb up to Rifugio Bertone (1970m or 6463 ft) with the best view of the Mont Blanc Massif. Hiked along the Mont de la Saxe, taking the balcony path facing the ridge of the Grandes Jorasses. Stopped for a picnic lunch
    Descend to Rifugio Bonatti, overlooking the Italian Val Ferret for the night.
