La Dent de Verreu
With an altitude of 2,207 metres, the Aouille (meaning "needle" in local dialect) in the Criou Range is one destination not to be missed by walkers. From positions flanked by rocks and alpine meadows, the view extends right across the valley, the Buet (alt. 3,200 metres) nicknamed the "Mont Blanc des Dames" and the highest peak in Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, the Sallière Tower, the Rousse des Chambres promontory (which can be reached on foot from the Folly mountain hut) and the Dents Blanches Range.
