Start from the hamlet of Saint-Jacques and follow the path along the Evançon river until you come to the town of Blanchard. From here, take the mule track that leads to the upper pass of the Cime Bianche. After going through the forest you will come to the Fiery plain, go through the village of the same name and carry on along the path until you come to the Alp Ventina.
Go past the pastures and carry on upwards until you come to the chalets at Varda and along the bottom of the valley you will come to the Alp Mase. Once here, leave the path for the upper pass of the Cime Bianche and head right in order to cross a small valley. Carry on keeping to the right then turn left in the direction of a stony, steep pass that leads to the bivouac.
