This is one of the few but well known places in the french alps for aiplane crashes....together with Obiou and a couple more.
The usual ways up start from Château-Garnier, on the eastern side (accomodation available in this village), which belongs to the upper Verdon valley. Nice place for long lone autumn walks and winter glides. Some shepherds huts around help a lot to arrange longer trips. Aparted and quiet areas where you ought to carry a (or a few...) good book to really enjoy your evenings !
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
