Ascent Trip Report

Warm sunshine on south facing slopes. wooded ascent on paths from valley. some paths became a bit vague and did not match map but worked out - passing a small castle being restored and a monastery - great views towards Mont Blanc. Clearing on wooded ridge summit -looked out over a sea of fog covering the whole of Lake Geneva -magical.
Followed ridge path north towards col but cut corner on disappearing little used paths. nice rural hamlets with Christmas decorations out (santa climbing up to a window being popular)
