Pointe de Chalune: Via the Combe du Foron

From the hamlet of Bonnavaz (1187m) or Encrenaz pass (1433m), follow the road until the Foron chalets (1355m).  Then go up the scoop of Foron towards the NW first passing Foron du Milieu (1499m) then Foron d'en Haut (~1680m) located at the base of a small plateau. Always traverse this plateau towards the NW and reach slightly on the right the Foron pass (1832m).

Via an ascending traverse on the left (SW), you reach the Chalune pass (1896m) which gives access to the SSE face of  Pointe de Chalune. Climb directly N to reach the E ridge, which is broad and not very inclined, follow it as far as the Chalune summit.

Descent: two possibilities: -by the uphill route (classic route); -via the broad SSE face of Chalune and the traverse of the Bolire pass(1649m) which makes it possible to reach the scoop of Foron. Very short sections of S4 if you start directly from the summit on skis.
