Ascent Trip Report

From the large car park at the col, we took the marked trail through forest on the south-east flank of the peak. This brought us to Col de Soum, with Lac de Soum below. There we turned south-west onto a track along the north flank, diverting on a fainter path to the summit, marked with a small concrete trig point buried in the grass and heather.

We descended the steep south ridge, to rejoin the GR 101 back to the car park.
