Pointe Blanche

Featured photo of Pointe Blanche

Pointe Blanche is part of the Massif des Bornes, Bargy range in France Haute Savoie. From Col de la Colombière (1613 m.) the path to Pointe Blanche soon becomes rocky. The trail is marked in red, but often it’s not easy to find. This hike requires sure footing and easy rock climbing at a few passages.

On the way down it’s possible to traverse the very exposed Col du Rasoir and reach Pic de Jallouvre, one of the other summits of the Bornes massif.
