Pic Montaud

Another glorious day and a few fuzzy heads after the Prosecco….

We had planned another adventure explore walk we wanted to do from the barn. We headed up to Cabane Pouill which is just over an hour from the barn on the way to Port de Salau. From there we headed off on small paths that kept disappearing up to Lane Formente (2227m) quite steep. We popped over a small col before hitting the ridge which gave fabulous views of the walk we did the day before.

It was then a walk/scramble along the ridge up to Pic Montaud at (2496m) Looked more daunting than it actually was and we got to the summit for a late lunch in the hot sun with fab views.

We decided not to go back down via Port de Salau but instead via the col just this side of Pic de Mortabere and rejoin the PDS hike by the top berger’s hut.

Some skinny dipping on the way down for the guests!!! and back to the barn for about 5.30pm. A big day but great fun with fab views and all heads clear again for sure!!!

Continued with the fizz theme for the evening and then had a Thai Curry and salad for supper, with more giggles…..
