Pointe de la Golaise

Pointe de la Golaise - Description

The Pointe de la Golese is located towards the end of the Vallée de la Manche, a picturesque and sparsely populated valley heading south-east from Morzine. It is one of the less frequently visited peaks in the area (shh, don’t tell anyone) meaning that fresh tracks are guaranteed on the descent.

Much of the ascent is through forest before opening out onto a remote bowl leading to the summit. The route takes you past several alpages, summer pastures with traditional farm chalets.  From the summit, at 1835 m, you get spectacular views of the Tete de Bostan, the Dents Blanches and over towards Samoens.

The height gain from the departure to the summit is 700 m, making it a great day out and away from the crowds. The classic descent route offers you various options from along the ridge (watch out for the big cornice). The steepness is a maximum of 32 degrees, the most technical part of which is through back through the forest with tired legs! The bowl face west and north, meaning that the snow stays good long after a snowfall. There are also more technical descent variants on the south and eastern slopes, however much steeper and with many cliff bands.

Advantages

This is a great itinerary with no hidden challenges. It is away from the crowds and much less frequented compared to other routes of a similar grade.

Is this for me?

Suitable for those wanting a relatively straightforward splitboard tour in the Portes du Soleil area.
