Route Description

Path to the summit
Path

In the Pas de Peyrol (1.588m) you take the path signaled with paint red and white behind of the restaurant in North direction. The good path goes over the SE ridge of our peak following the signals of paint until a shoulder at 100 meters of the trailhead. In this point the path goes to left side descending to border our summit but you leave the path searching a small path on the ridge crossing to right side. It's not necessary to reach the ridge directly and the path turn to go under the edge in a nice path on the hillside until to reach a small col on the South ridge. The wide ridge is a nice walk-up without problems in direction of the summit. In the last meters you border the fence for the rigth side to climb the nice summit with great views.

Essential Gear

Nothing special on summer.
In winter when the road of Pas de Peyrol is closed you can climb with ski. It's necessary the use of crampons and ice-axe probably in the path under the edge of the ridge.
