Hike to Dérochoir

Credit : OT Passy

Difficult hike. Discover the magnificent combe of Sales from the col. Some trickey areas on the way down and when the ground is wet.

Technical description: walk up to the Ayères d'en haut either by the slopes or by the mountain hut Châtelet d'Ayères and the Mollays chalet. Go to the hamlet of the Ayères des Pierrières. Near the pool, a path goes into the Nature reserve of Passy and winding in the scree on the left of the Fiz cliffs. Beware of the vertigo feeling: the last part is equiped with cables and strings.
