From the parking des Pautets, start climbing on the wide route towards the mountain pasture.
After passing tit, head east towards the W ridge of Le Folly.
The slope begins to slowly rise, and you walk along the hillside towards Le Molard.
Then climb through the last foresty part, and exit it at the summit where a beautiful 360° view on the neighbouring summits welcomes you.
Continue on the ridge towards Le Molard, and on your left, you will see the entrance of the N couloir (approx.
10min after you reach the summit of Le Folly). The first meters of the couloir are quite impressive and definitely the most steep (40-43°); they can be icy.
Then the slope becomes gentler and gentler (35°) and widens up to reach back the mountain pasture, where you find the ascent path.
