Ascent Trip Report

As others have mentioned in their trip reports additional research indicated that the high point was likely Les Platons close to the military tower and not the point listed on the website. Approximate coordinates: 49° 14.887'N 2° 6.292'W. That is the point I attempted to reach.

Took the bus from St. Helier. Since it was a Sunday there was a less frequent and shorter service that dropped off in front of the church in Trinity. Followed various roads up to La Rue des Platones. From there a short walk to the probable high point. It wasn't clear access was allowed on these trails, but they quickly connect to what is certainly public walking paths so it is not clear.

Decided to walk along the coast and catch the bus from the zoo instead of retracing my steps. Best decision of the trip. Very nice trails along the cliff face.
