Splendid climb without any major difficulties, suitable for good hikers.

Cross the dam and follow the path along the lake on the right bank. At the crossroads, take the path which leads to Col d’Emaney (Emaney Pass). The trail winds through a very pretty small valley, passing close to Ottans Lake and the former gold and arsenic mines. From the pass, the track follows the crest up to the peak. This may be a difficult passage for those susceptible to vertigo. The return can follow the same trail or head down from the peak in the direction of Creusaz, along a trail that includes passages equipped with chains and ladders.
