Thanks to willhe for adding this peak.

The highest mountain of the environment. You can climb it in one day (8 hours to the summit), but is nicer to do it in 2 days (via refuge du Mont Thabor). At the summit great view over the alps: Mont Blanc, Les Ecrins, La Meije, Le mont Viso, Le Galibier. You can spend the night in the "chappel" and watch the sunset from 3178 m.

    une de mes plus belles promenades pour mon anniversaire. Longue mais pas fatigante. Avons quitté le chalet Laval à 8h45, et retour à 18h45. Très peu de neige, juste quelques névés.
