In case of bad weather: If the weather forecast is bad, we will cancel. I'll send an email the afternoon before the hike with my decision.

Maximum: 10 people

Maximum altitude: 1845 m

Ascent and descent: 700 m

Walking Time: 5 hours

Hike description: From col de Plainpalais (1150) in the massif des Bauges, we walk up a steep, grassy ski piste just to the left of the lift, to the top pylon then through bushes to a steep trail with loose rock and then to the base of the summit cliff. We turn right and climb up a tricky bit, then then to a dead end with a surprise :-) at the Trou de l’Agneau. At the summit we explore 3 cracks that one can descend into and walk their length. We descend the somewhat easier route via the Golet de l’Agneau with cables, ladders and iron bars.
