Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the parking lot at 45.685361, 3.783194. For ascending, I chose a paved road. Good views, a bit boring (subjective, please forgive me). Came to the high military fence. Every fifty metres it is clearly written that this is "zona militaire" with a law article number. Went to the SE side, where the high wooden fence ends and the metal fence starts. This is the highest legally accessible point. There was so much snow that it would be possible to cross a metal fence without even stopping. The concrete trig pillar is approximately 20 meters away. point is marked with a cross and is located even closer. Maybe 10 metres from the fence. Half a minute later, I went back. There is one more trig pillar to the SW. On the way down, I made a small detour and visited two more bumps: Procher - 1540m P20 and Peyre Mayou - 15421m P50

0h50 up, 1h00 down, 1h50 roundtrip
