Col de Tsarmine (Walk 26)

The end of the Evolène valley is dominated by the “twin peaks” of the Grande and Petite Dents de Veisivi.  I was advised that you needed climbing equipment (and a climbing partner of course) to get to the top of them, but that it was possible to get to the Col de Tsarmine, which sits at the base of the V between them.  So, it had to be done.  The route starts in the Arolla valley and rises over 1200 metres (4,000 ft) to the col at 3,050 metres (10,000 ft).  As you can see from the pictures, the views were fantastic.
