    Route type a circular, round trip: round trip

    From the car park, go north on a wide path towards the Col de Vernaz. Pass on the right bank of Ruisseau de Chevenne and continue North-North-East.

    At a fork, turn right onto a path (let the wide path go left towards Crêt Pèzerin). Stay parallel to the stream then deviate from it and, by a few bends, reach the Col de Vernaz.

    From the pass, go north towards La Calaz and climb a large grassy ridge with numerous switchbacks (steep slope). So reach the chalet of La Calaz.

    Then turn left (North-West) and continue to climb in the mountain pastures and directly above Saix de la Calaz then Rochers de Chaudin. Reach a flat area with Swiss yellow signs at the edge of a valley to the north (Middle Lime).

    Continue west towards the Cornettes de Bise. Climb between rocks and lapiaz and arrive at the base of the summit. Turn right and, after several laces, reach the top.

    The return is made in the opposite direction on the same path to the parking lot of the Chevenne chalets (D / A).
