After walking the majestic slopes of the Sirac, you will get to the Drac and its gravel-filled riverbed, which is here and there invaded by a spontaneous vegetation made up of willow and birch. A hinge between the Champsaur area and the Valgaudemar area, this leg enables you to reach the highest point of the Vieux Chaillol tour, which is the Valette pass.
From the Vallonpierre mountain refuge, walk along the lake and then climb the north slope of the Vallonpierre pass (2607 m) On the shaly, unstable, slopes the path leads to Vallon Plat then climbs again towards the Gouiran pass (2597 m). From there, descend the scree to get to the Gouiran valley before climbing the shaly scree up to the Vallette pass. Change to the left bank once you reach the southern summit of the valley. The path heads down to the right bank of the De la Pierre stream. Continue to the Pré de la Chaumette pastures and then to the mountain refuge. The GR follows the right bank of the Drac, continues above the hamlet of Chaumeille ruins and leads to the Auberts bridge. Cross the Drac Blanc and follow the footpath on the hillside that then heads down to the Beaumes bridge. From here, follow a cross-country ski track that goes past the hamlet of Beaumes (1364 m). By the same track, you will reach the hamlet of Gondoins and get back to the road near to the bridge. Follow the road to Borels.
