Mont Valier Climbing Notes
Jack Magill from FRANCE writes:
Mont Valier is accessible from a number of directions. The most convenient on the french side of the frontier is to start from the Vallee d'Ribérot, car parking is available at le place de lau.
<br/>From there follow the red and white GR10 symbols along the river, cross the second set of bridges and climb through a beech forest to the cascade d'Nérech about 1hour 40 mins. Cross the bridge by the water fall then its a steady climb of 2hours 30mins to Le refuge des Estangnous at 2246 meters. Accommodation is available through the summer months. Another 1hour 40mins will take you to the sommet 2838M
<br/>There is also acommadation at the beginning of the climb at the maison d'Vallier.
<br/>Care should be taken in early summmer crampons and an ice axe may be necessary (and the skills to use them) through to June.
<br/>Check at the Office de Toutisme.
