Description

## Ascent to the Cheese Pass [img=231757 right/] From Ceillac, go up the valley NE along the Cristillan.

Reach Le Villard, then take the path towards the Cheese Pass, along the forest. ## Chambrette Ridge From the pass, go to the W and go up the ridge to the old optical station.

The path makes some wide bends, a path is possible that goes directly up along the ridge. ## Descent over the Bramousse pass Go down a few meters, then take the path that leads to the W.

We then reach the crest of Jean Grossan's Château with a beautiful view of Ceillac.

The trail continues and quickly reaches the Bramousse pass.

Take the path that goes down to the S towards Ceillac. ###### Variant It is possible to start from Le Villard (car parking at the level of the bridge 50 m below the village), which saves 30min compared to a departure from Ceillac.

On the way back after the Bramousse pass, head E near point 2014 and follow the path that goes down pleasantly to Le Villard.<br/><br/>_This Adventure has been shared under the [Creative Commons Share Alike](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/) licence._
