Ascent Trip Report

After an morning ascent of Pic de Bure.

Summit closed to vehicles for road improvements, but late evening there was space at le Radome parking at the last hairpin west of the summit, a pleasant sunny wander up stony trail, although cold wind made it the coldest summit in 6 weeks! Highpoint is a stone cobbled platform, highest natural point may be the cairned area immediately to east, but even that contains the remains of a concrete structure. The large comms installation is built on lower ground. Wandered back down the road; viewfinder is nicely done but misses out Pic de Bure I climbed earlier today. A few clouds and contrasting light made peaks hard to distinguish, but a good looking view nevertheless, interesting limestone terrain.

Next morning I 'climbed' Sommet de Lure.
