Route Description

 
Puy de Sancy
Col de la Cabanne
 
Way of Sancy
beginning

In the station of Mont-Dore you searchs the exit of chemin de Sancy in the great map of ski-resort following to left side. You must walk the curves of the piste of ski following the paint red and white. You can't leave the signals of paint (it's an order of the ski-resort and the park of Volcanos of Auvergne). You reach a great plateau at NE of Plan de la Grange. In this plateau you have the option to leave the paint, always following paths, to climb Puy de Cacadogne (1.785m) on left side, an important and interesting peak. You can see on left side the rest of the piste to the area of cable-way of Sancy but it's better to follow to SW to reach the col of Pan de la Grange (1700m). The path goes now to right (NW) to reach the col de la Cabanne (1.785m) and the zig-zag to the summit.

Essential Gear

On winter crampons and ice-axe. The use of ski is a good option on winter.
