Report of the path. From
Pont Canavese, go up the SP50 or the Valle Orco Locana , leading to the Col Nivolet , pass Ceresole Royal, where is located the eponymous lake, the Chiapili , just past the shelter Guido Muzio, road gradient and increases in a series of switchbacks to get to Lake Serrù . Under the High Dam, there is great square where you can park several cars. From the dam to go up a couple of turns until signpost for Refuge Pian della Ballotta and Colle della Losa . We
north along Lake Serrù to Rifugio Pian della Ballotta at this point, we must consider, depending on snow conditions it is better to go up the steep gully, or arrive at the shelter and take the path that goes from the roof equipped .
rose from the east to the Pian Ballotta, surely it is time to put on skis and skins and climb up to the amphitheater of ice Losa, here again, we must decide, from the back if snow conditions direct the maximum slope, or to practice the way of the ridge, in both cases we arrive at the Pass of the Cow on the Glacier des Sources de l'Isere.

E 'can also derive from the north, but we pass from the normal side just behind the north-west, and any attention to the glacier crevasses, but we have found it in excellent condition. The last stretch ends on the west ridge that leads to the summit.
The descent follows the same route, someone comes down the north wall, although it is considered the limit of extreme skiing, someone else comes down from the south and then return to Lake Serrù, from Chariot.
