Join the chalets of the Plan de la Cry, then follow the summer path in the forest towards Chailloux.
Around 1915 m, leave the forest to see the chalets of Chailloux (1930 m), then pass through the valley above the chalets.
The aiguillette des Houches is visible at the bottom of this valley.
It is also possible to cut before the chalets of Chailloux at the exit of the forest to take the plan of Benoï and reach the valley around 2050 m after a small steep passage. ##Descending Several possibilities: - By the same route (a lot of way) - By the SW side by taking on the right around 2100 m then go down the whole face to Le Peutets, take the almost horizontal path located just after a passage in the vernes (around 1500 m) then follow this path to the left to fall back on the ascent route to the plan of the Cry. - By[[roads/52335|the Vogealle corridor]] with return from Pierre Blanche after a small ascent. - By the NW edge at the start and then by the W side.<br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/) licence._
