Ascent Trip Report

I parked a few hundred meters north of the Col des Finiels at a little bridge. From there a path leads west along the gently rising rounded ridge to a fore summit, a little drop and then the actual summit. From there, I could see the previous summit Mont Aigoual, and the next one, Mont Mezenc. Returning by the same route, I enjoyed the now warm Autumn sunshine and the beautiful clear air and views above the valley cloud.
