I wondered what the Route du Mont Thou would be like rollerskiing. It is possible to climb all the way to Mont Thou by turning right at the Hameau du Mont Thou but the road is very steep. That's another project. There had been some spring road gravelling (chip and seal) which wasn't great but also the road surface is not great in parts, particuarly lower down in the woods.
Of course when I got to the top I realised I'd left my trainers back in the car so had to walk down with my ski boots, which won't have done the soles any favours. 25 minutes for the climb.
Warm and muggy
