The visitation descent is a descending crossing of a fairly difficult level (2 wooden footbridges) with alternating rocky passages and paths which ends with an original ladder (20 meters of descent facing the view of the gorge). 100 meters of path then leads to the Assomption step. The last step presents a short athletic passage and above all a splendid and impressive final crossing above the Nant waterfall. Finally, the footbridge of the Virgin crosses the stream elegantly.
