    Here you can (quite steeply) descend to the Lac de Capitello. From there theoretically to the Lac de Melo and from there through the Restonica Valley to Corte (long way)

    The Brèche offers many possibilities. Trip to the lakes, an exit via Corte or a modified route leading instead of the ridge.

    A bit of climing on the GR20

    Here the hands are needed.
    In some places, it is very tight so that the backpack often decreases better.

    The climbing area is easy to walk with the chain that secures it.

    The ascent to the 2,220 m high Breche de Capitello is very arduous. It's supposed to be worthwhile especially at sunrise, but we didn't do that. From above you have a great view down to the two mountain lakes Lac de Capitello and Lac de Melo. The rest of the way is also very demanding and progresses accordingly slowly.

    A long iron chain secures this climbing point and therefore it is easy to master with a little caution.
