Start near the entrance of the Merlet Park, walk up alongside the fence, then follow the path on the right to Bel-Lachat and le Brévent for 10 minutes. Take the lever path on the left for 400 m. It now leads into the forest on the right and after climbing for half an hour, you will come to the path from Chailloux. Carry on to the upper plateau of Plan de Benoi. A large combe ending in a steep slope brings you out at a small col and the Aiguillette.
