Ascent Trip Report

From the junction 400 yards S of the Font des Pi. Followed intermittent blue cloth waymarkers on branches to the look out tower at Coll de Carnicerat. Shortly after, I missed the two small cairns marking the path traversing below the Bishop, and followed a climbers' path up the E ridge through scree until the prospect of exposed scrambling on friable rock turned me back. the path below the Bishop, a huge mitre-shaped rock pillar, leads to a signposted junction, after which a step ascent path leads to the summit via an easy final scramble. Magnificent views from the summit.
