Rigging : Serre du Duc (Scialet du) / BTH

Depuis le rond-point central du village de Vassieux-en-Vercors (mairie), prendre la rue des Maquis (D615), vers le sud.
Traversez l’avenue des Planeurs, sans oublier de marquer le stop, et continuer sur la même D615 toujours plein sud pendant deux cents mètres environ, jusqu’à dépasser les dernières maisons du village.
Après une petite plantation de conifères, pendre un chemin de terre à gauche (plein est) qui longe un petit jardin potager.
Continuer encore trois cents mètres environ sur ce chemin qui oblique d’abord au sud-est puis se redresse un peu vers l’est avant de partir plein sud en contournant une doline-perte allongée.
Au coude, au lieu de continuer vers le sud sur le chemin, prendre dans l’axe du cheminement antérieur un vague tracé qui marque la limite entre deux champs.
Continuer tout droit jusqu’à une zone lapiazée surélevée qui porte le toponyme de Serre du Duc sur les cartes.
Gravir le petit dénivelé.
La doline bien visible est reconnaissable par les déblais de désobstruction stockés dans sa partie sud.

Il est également possible d’emprunter un autre itinéraire depuis le même rond-point central du village, en prenant la D76 (Avenue Georges Magnat) vers le sud-est, en direction du Col de Rousset.
Suivre cette route sur environ 700 mètres.
A la fin de la grande ligne droite en sortie du village, la zone lapiazée du Serre du Duc impose à la route un virage vers la gauche.
A l’entrée de ce virage, quitter la route en direction du sud et longer la bordure du lapiaz
Peu après être passé sous une ligne électrique, se rencontre la doline.
Cette variante est plus longue et moins sûre que via la D615 car le cheminement n’est pas marqué ; en outre de nombreux petits reliefs et embryons de chemins erratiques peuvent faire dévier du bon itinéraire.
