Trip Reports


Very soft on the road where the sun was hitting the snow. Slow climbing, sticky descending. 12h30 is obviously too late at the moment. Climbing to the Oratoire was a bad plan, better to stick to the nordic area.

From the col de Mouilles follow the road (closed in the winter) towards the Pré Marcel. At the first junction take the left fork then 750 meters take a path to the right that climbs obliquely from the road.
