Before the gondola parking, turn right on the path that leads to La Rosière. Use the Petit Balcon Nord on the right for 150m, notice the Maison Forte, pass under the Chosalets ski lift, then go up on the left towards the couloir. This beautiful path enters the undergrowth: the ascent, although made of many twists and turns, is pleasant. At the end of the Couloir de la Jeureuma, the path joins the one coming from Le Lavancher and Le Chapeau near the chalet-restaurant of Plan-Joran. Continue on the left and reach the Cross of Lognan.
