Approach

From the car parking at Tre-le-Champ take the Chéserys path which leads to Lac Blanc via l’Aiguillette d’Argentière. After about an hour and when the path climbs up in rounded steps, take a faint path on the right to join the path along the base of the cliff. The start is 150m to the left of the Voie Bleu, (which goes up the centre of the cliff, bright bolts), and slightly lower down, at the level of a stepped, yellowish slab.
