I added the altitudes in a separate altiude category. They have been removed from the prominence category.
What i added is the list of Chartreuse main summits with their altitude not their prominence.
Please note that the road is closed to all vehicles for works about 3 km before getting to the col, until the end of june 2006. This road is NOT cleared from snow above the village of Pomarey. Only hikers or skiers might then use it.
Essential are the IGN 1:25000 scale "top 25" maps :
- 3333 OT "Chartreuse Nord"
- 3334 OT "Chartreuse Sud".
Available almost in every newspaper/bookshop in the immediate surroundings. Grenoble, Chambéry and Lyon large booksellers are of course a good option.
In the past, I often got myself trapped into some tricky situations, having followed the "Didier-Richard" indications....But well, they perhaps made some progress...
You should move this article to the "areas & ranges" section. Chartreuse is more than a rock or a mountain, it is a "massif"
Could you add a link to my page on Chartreuse hikes?
Perhaps you could attach it to the Western Alps ?
