Follow the "Couloir du Saix" keeping an eye out for Ibex who often frequent this area. Leaving the "couloir" continue on the right side of the ridge edge. Proceed paying attention to several crossing routes to eventually reach the Cross on the Summit of Les Corenttes du Bise. The return can be done by going to the left in the direction of "Col de Chaudin" that also marks the border with the Switzerland. Go left along the ridge and continue to the "Chalets de Loz".
