Route

There are two options to start the ascent:
Take the summer path to the N and follow it to a signpost "chemin piéton" (at about 1580m ).
Start to the left of the bottom lift station and to the left of the river, (looking up from the top of the car parking.) Follow the river for about 500m then go up a path on the left to reach the signpost mentioned in the first option.
From the signpost go up for several hundred metres in the forest to leave it at around 1650m (commemorative plaque.) From here follow the summer path, which steepens under some avalanche barriers, to reach a little plateau with abandoned slates. Go up a sustained slope to reach the summit ridge about 100m below the summit and continue up this to the summit. (It is easier to traverse under the summit to reach the top of the Possettes ski lift and then up the ridge to the summit from there.)

Descent

Several options :
Follow, more or less, the ascent route.
Descend NE to the top of the Posettes skilift and take one of the many options from there, e.g the Combe des Gossailles, back to Le Tour.
Go down to the W onto the side facing le Buet/Vallorcine and take one of the several gullies on the W face, (avalanche prone, S3 and S4 depending on the gully).

remarks

The route is near the Le Tour ski area and is often skied down from the top of the Possettes lift when conditions are good.

There are sensitive areas on this route. Please refer to the map.
