    Getting close to it :
    • With the gondola, park your car in front of the tourism office in Chamrousse 1650 called Le Recoin.
    From the top, la Croix de Chamrousse, walk until the col de La Botte, the cliff is on your right side. Then, join it thanks to the small path.
    • On foot, reach Chamrousse 1750 called Roche-Béranger and start from the Croisette turn.
    Park your car and follow the slopes until la Croix de Chamrousse or walk to the Achard lake, the Infernet pass and passing though the Botte pass. The second choice, much nicer is longer (around 1 hour to 1 hour and a half depending on options).

    Caution: be careful to the gondola timetables.
