From Le Buet, cross the hamlet Poya and take the direction of the Cascade de Bérard (waterfall).
At the footbridge of Fontaine-Froide take right to the chalets Sur le Rocher (1534 m). Just before, turn left into the Vallon de Tré les Eaux.
Higher a cliff blocks the progression : a crack in the rocks fitted with chains helps to climb this wall.
