Time: 25 Aug 06, ascent 0:55, descent 0:35

Start: from SE, 0.3km along D6, small pull-in s side of road by Cross (normally from Larroz or Preles - access prevented by roadworks)

Route: mapped cart track via la Grange, joining main mapped “red” track at Larroz, leading to summit

Notes: Nice walk, fine view across urban valley to mountains beyond; impressive cliffs S side of summit.
