For safety reasons, the Col du Pochet remains closed until further notice.

Indeed, the Plaine Morte and Col du Pochet sectors are affected by reptations* ranging from 2.5m to 4m in thickness.

The reptations at Plaine Morte are located on the South and East faces of Tubang, as well as in the Grand Couloir du Grand Bonvin.
