Ascent Trip ReportLast of 3 short outings on hogmanay (new year's eve). Starting from the tiny hamlet of la Golette, snowshoes were necessary from the first step away from the car. Forest tracks then directly through open forest. Terrain probably easier when snow-covered than when not. Trig was impossible to locate on the flattish summit under the snow.
