Go through Le Châtelard village. Go past the former school and head towards Le Vaz. When you get to Le Vaz, head towards La Roche up the forest trail. Follow the signs for La Roche. After the junction, go left and follow the trail that winds up through the forest, getting steeper and steeper as you climb.

Once you come out into the meadow, keep going up until you reach the sign saying “Alt. 2086m”, then head down the trail on your right. Cross the alpine meadows and go past the rocks which are dotted around the final ascent. Follow the trail up to the cross at the top of the Bec Rouge.
