Description of the route

From the centre of the village of Rhêmes-Notre-Dame you follow the tarmac road going down the valley for about two hundred metres until you come to La Veforche; near the car park (on your left) you take the footpath that climbs up between the meadows. You cross the bridge over the mountain torrent and continue on a zig-zag path climbing up the grassy slopes dominated by a high rock face and then cross a small coniferous wood. When you reach the grassy ridge, the trail draws a long diagonal line climbing gently as far as the Torrent mountain pastures. From here you bear left going across a large alluvial canyon which you then walk alongside over sparse pastureland as far as the foot of a rock face. Then going right you climb upwards round several bends up the steep slope with debris and pastures which leads to Col Fenêtre.
