Ascent Trip Report

Drive up from the East. Was surprised to find the trig is still there behind the tower and amongst the other buildings. Quite unique summit thoroughly spoiled by so much human intrusion.

The mistral was blowing very strongly, it was difficult to walk in a straight line but the views went north to the cloud capped Obiou and Pic de Bure.
