  • nuit to torino refuge the night before. advantage, person in the itinerary and possibility to take a ride on the edges of rochefort. downside a bit cool if you climb the tooth in the morning in the shade, but for a fast roped you climb back when the parties are redescendues.
  • a the day + night in torino. advantage, no stress for the track and possibility to do another race in the sector the next day! ideal actually ;-)
