from the town of Perloz you have to follow signs for the hamlet of Marine and from here carry on until you come to the village of Cresta. At the first hairpin bend take the mule track leading into the valley and head up as far as the village of Pessé. From this village take another mule track on the right that leads across steep, subsiding slopes as far as the village of Pra. Close to the fountain the mule track continues on the left as far as the Nantay valley. At the narrowest point, the mule track passes a river with a series of hairpin bends as far as the Pian houses. Leave the chalets on the left and carry on along the flat, coming over the ridge until you come to the Lers chalet. The path here is once again on the left and passes two small creeks and carries on to the left until it reaches the chalets at Barmette. Go back up the ridge looking for traces of the path that then transforms into stony ground and you come to the bivouac and ridge.
