  1. From the Col de la Crousette (925 m), take the path that goes up to the Col St Ange.Just  before the pass (1193 m), go right towards the paragliding site. Continue straight ahead to reach the ridge.

  2. The Col St Ange (1235 m) is a privileged passage between the Méouge valley and the Baronnies.  Ignore the path straight ahead  that reaches Orpierre and continue to the left on the ridge via the GR (red and white marking). After a rocky and open passage, the path becomes more shaded.
  3. At  the Pas de Ste Colombe (1201 m), leave the GR and enjoy the panorama of the village of Sainte Colombe below. The return path is on the left. In the first bend, continue on the path on the opposite side.
  4. At the crossroads (1005 m), the path joins up with motorable tracks. Continue straight on to the starting point.
