Itinerary

From markerno. 30, pass the ruins of upper Gréolières and go up the south side on the GR4. After marker no. 193, cross the Barres du Cheiron to first reachthe Barri cross, then Le Collet (marker no. 194). Go up due east of the ridges, a mix of scree, lapies and sheep grazing land (off-trail). Shortly after the hill(1,564 m), head to the ridges bordering the cliffs on the south side (off-trail). When you can see the lifts at the top of the Cheiron (chair lift), the peak (1,778 m) is just a short walk away. Return by the same route (marker no. 194, 193, 30).
