Ascent Trip Report

Parked at roadside of D62 on flatish topped, wooded hill. Followed signs to Rocher aux Oiseaux. There is a very large, but faded sign when you arrive. The photo on wikipedia is of a low flat rock, possibly a tumulus. However there is a large pile of weathered rock behind the sign, which is clearly in the same department. We scrambled to the top of this.
