Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the roadside, at the curve at 43.763861, 6.2685. 

It is a little tricky to get to the trailhead because it is located a few metres higher than the road. but it's possible to step up at the nearby water source. The forest trail is occasionally steep but easy to navigate. Grassy slope walk to the ridge. Finally, a short flat walk on the ridge to the top. Beautiful views of the canyon from the summit. Colorful autumn. I soon found myself walking down the same path.

0h55 up, 0h50 down, 1h45 round trip.
