Ascent Trip Report

Cold rain showers / sleet higher up. In need of exercise we road hiked up the hairpins for 1hr 10mins -closest hill to our house-sit accommodation on the edge of Geneva. Had climbed the hill a few days earlier form a sunny south.Long drawn out gradual zig zags on little used potholed road in rain/ sleet. When we reached slush on the road we decided we had enough and ran back down.
