    Follow the #11 signs towards the place called Chaupalin, where you can refuel with something tasty at the picturesque Chez Yoyo et Jiby restaurant. From here, you can also feast your eyes on a splendid panorama overlooking Les Crosets and including the Dents du Midi (3257m), the Ruan massif (3220m) and the Dents Blanches (2760m).
