Ascent Trip Report

Follow N3 to D11 and D11 to the end where you can park at a geothermal pool. (apparently there are brain eating amoebas in there so don't duck your head under.) From here you can hike a trail which eventually breaks off into a few other trails. Well marked (in French). To summit is about a 3 hour roundtrip probably.

Got some heavy rain on and off but it was an enjoyable hike. We hit the summit around 2:30 with zero visibility and strong winds. Relatively warm and despite being soaked, dried off mostly by the time we got back to the car. The most challenging part of this hike was steep up and down roads in our weak rental car. Some scrambling getting towards the top.
