From the summer village of S-charl, at the bridge at the entrance to the village, the path leads in the direction of Ils Chomps, gently ascending through the forest. On the way we pass the remains of a mine. Towards the tree line, the hike eventually climbs quite steeply, before it becomes flatter again on the last stretch to Mot Madlain. We descend along the same path to S-charl.
