    From the Grenairon refuge, head towards Les Frêtes du Grenier. The trail transports you directly to another universe, at more than 2,500 meters above sea level. Alpine lawns give way to rock. This section on the edges requires to remain attentive to the place where one puts the feet. It's no small feat
