Ascent Trip ReportI drove up a forest road to the east of this peak until stopped by a barrier on the forest road. The 1:25K map shows a spot height of 954m at this point near a building labelled le Haut de Pheny. From that point I followed a good quality marked trail (yellow circles) to a point directly south of the top where a gravestone (marked Jean-Marie Houot 1936-1980) sits beside the path. From there I bushwhacked up a short slope top the flat boggy summit area, which is clear of trees (although ringed by them, so no view). Returned by the same route.
