Ascent Trip Report

After a morning ascent of Le Roignais, I crossed the border from France and bagged this easy peak en route to Switzerland.

Climbed from N, a bit less 'industrialised' than from the SW. 15mins round trip, trig point may be at natural highpoint: as it was cordoned off I looked down on it from the man made and slightly higher comms tower base. 7 Euro road toll. Nice easy one after the excitement of Le Roignais this morning.

In the evening I crossed into Switzerland (the border unmanned despite Covid-19) and next morning climbed Monte Tamaro.
