|Peak:||Le Grand Veymont|
| Elevation:||2340 m / 7680 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportParked at La Coche, south of St-Agnan-en-Vercors. Hiked due east along established but variably signposted tracks to La Chau and Pas de la Ville then up the north ridge of Le Grand Veymont (easy but initially mildly exposed and loose under foot) to the summit. Searched for the IGN trig but couldn't find it; perhaps under the cairn or one of the windshelters. Atmospheric swirling cloud with a base of 2000-2200 metres, so views limited but fleetingly very impressive. Returned the same way. 16km round trip, 6 hours total, but our family hikes are very leisurely. The Vercors is a beautiful sparsely populated heavily forested limestone region and I'd love to come back to do the GR91 traverse of the area.
