Ascent Trip Report

First locate the village of Anor, just on the French side of the France-Belgium border. Then drive east on the D156 (Rue de Roi Albert 1er) towards Belgium. Where the road turns 45 degrees left (NE) park in a lay-by. Continue on foot E down a narrow road to a (farm)house. There was no-one home at the time of my visit but I think it would be good manners to ask permission to enter the fields behind the house. If the farmer is at home and not understanding, access could be problematic, this is clearly private land. Go through a gate on the left of the house, and climb into the fields behind. There is a tiny pond, and my impression that the highest ground is just to the west of it. The Belgian border did not seem to be well marked, although I found one border stone.
