Ascent Trip Report(Brame Farine, 1230m, P709m)
Map: 1:25k: 3433OT (I used 1:100k sheet 53, not very successfully)
Stats: 35mH, 1.5km (stats expected for a successful summit bid)
Time: 29 Aug 06
Start: from NE, Chalet de Brame-Farine, 5km from Allevard, road then good forest track, parking at junction
Route: follow “red” path SW for c. 500m; summit should be 200m further S in trees.
Difficulties: none (other than looking in the wrong place for the summit!)
Trig point: 1210m mapped at Telecom tower, but not found – very brief search in pouring rain.
Notes: 100k map has height as 1210m at trig; sign near SSW summit displays height of 1204m with adjacent forest maybe 2-3m higher. www.bivouak.net gives 1205m. Heavy rain and dusky conditions not conducive to exploration, but unclear where the listed 1230m summit would be. Failed to obtain 1:25k map locally en route. Jonathan de Ferranti has since provided a 1:25k extract which indicates the summit is c. 700m SW of Chalet de Brame-Farine – I did not go there :-(
