Approach 300m of height loss, 20-25mins

From Sembrancher, take the road towards Verbier and the immediately turn off left, on a small road signposted for the Col des Planches. After 2.2kms you arrive at some hairpins. Park at the third hairpin, near to a wooden hut. (N46º05'03.1" E007º07'36.6") From here follow a track for about 80m. At the point it turns left towards the forest, continue straight ahead and cross a meadow towards a collapsed cairn at the edge of the woods to find the path. There are some faint blue markings, difficult to spot, but lots of small cairns. The path descends through the woods. After just over 200m height loss there is a fork in the path. The left hand option is the return path from the top of the crag. Take the right hand path, pass near some overhanging rock with bolted lines, to a pleasant area, complete with a couple of small benches, at the foot of a mossy slab. There are three bolted lines. The one on the left is "Le Bal des Debutants", just to the right is "Voie Hiroz", and further to the right is "AGMBV". (N46º 04'51.1" E007º 07'16.3")


P1 4b 25m
P2 4a 20m
P3 4b 35m
P4 4c 40m


Either: Abseil back down the route, (belays not set up for this, better to abseil back down "Voie Hiroz")
or: By a path, (cairns) which rejoins the descent (approach,) path about 200m of height below the parking.


Very close to the Voie Hiroz. Possible to interchange pitches
The belays are all two bolts, not linked.
