D/ Car park on the south plateau at La Féclaz 1/ Join the Chalet de l'Aurore then follow the signs for the Chalets de Glaise. 2/ After a few houses, turn right.

A wide forest track will guide you to the summit. 4/ A clearing invites you to take a breather before heading left. You will find a shelter before the viewpoint. 5/ To return, retrace your steps back to the clearing. 6/ Then leave the route you took on the way up and turn slightly left towards Le Sire. 7/ As you leave the forest at the Chalets d'alpage du Sire, leave the main path and turn right down the path. At the junction with the forest track, turn right again to return to the Chalets de Glaise. 8/ Return to Chalet de l'Aurore along the original path.
