Ascent Trip Report

I parked in a huge parking lot at 42.25675, -2.971111. I bought a chairlift ticket for 4 euros. I successfully used it in the first chairlift segment. I was already counting that I would bag the summit, and in 20 minutes I would be back at the car. Unfortunately, all the higher chairlift segments are for guys with skis only. Shoes are not enough. Nevermind, the next chair lift segment I almost overtook, not a very fast device. On the slope trail, there was no snow. The snow-free trail ends at the ridge. Sometimes, walking parallel or sometimes using a ski track, I reached the final slope. The final climb is not long, maybe a half kilometer and a hundred or so meters vertical. Not far and not hard. The summit was in the clouds, so I had nice views of the high point trig pillar. Minutes later, I was descending back.

My 500th summit of Core Europe's 600m prominence peaks.

1h20 up, 1h00 down, 2h20 round-trip.
