For the more experienced, a via cordata (rocky path with metal cables) allows you to continue to the Col de Mey mountain pass. Not a good idea if you suffer from vertigo!

The path winds up through scree and rhododendrons, opening out onto the Loze plateau.
You can take the gondola lift or the Sentier des Verdons (n°17) back down to the resort.
A lovely but strenuous walk up to the Col de la Loze mountain pass, where you can enjoy 360° panoramic views of the peaks from the orientation table and the breath-taking sight of Mont Blanc.
