Duration: 4 hours 45 minutes

Description of the route: take the road to Estoul-Palasinaz and, after about 1 km of paved road, you will arrive at the bridge of Messouère. Here, follow the route n. 3 on the left. After reaching the lake of Bringuez, continue on the steep climb of path n. 3, which has many hairpin bends. After ignoring the branch that descends to the lake Battaglia and continuing left towards the lake Lungo with the path n. 3B, you get to the path 3C that leads to the Corno Bussola.
