History

The first recorded ascension dates from 1848, by captain Loupot who was carrying out triangulation works. Of very easy access by its western slope, that of Gèdre, the summit is frequented by sheep and isards and has ever been ambled by shepherds and hunters.

Access

The most frequented access route runs today through the north, by a path which presents no difficulty (besides its steepness), from the Cap de Long dam.

Another slightly shorter route, is accessible to the east : which consists in reaching the Estaragne by ascending the stream hollow of Estaragne from the D 929, then to walk along the crest. It too, presents no major difficulty, at least not on a clear summer day.
