THE ROC BLANC

1 - DEPARTURE

Take the path (GRP around the Pays du Donezan) starting in the undergrowth, leaving the stream on your left. First very gently, the slope straightens up quite clearly until a small clearing. Cross a small stream and again the slope is steeper. After a straight left bend, continue on the ledge to arrive at the Counc hut.

2 - COUNC HUT

Leave the Counc hut on the right and continue on the ledge to reach a small steep hill. Once you have crossed this steep slope, a first view of the Roc Blanc is offered to you. One last passage between the pines and a small scree to cross and you are at Laurenti.

3 - LAURENTIAN POND

Go around the pond on the right and start the ascent, still on the GRP, leaving a stream below, in order to reach a small pond.

4 - SMALL POND

Once arrived at the level of this pond, continue on the GRP which goes to the right at a right angle. The climb becomes steeper and steeper to reach the laurenti pass.

5 - LAURENTI PASS

Leave the GRP and turn right onto the path which continues to climb to the ridge. The markup, less visible, is now simply made up of cairns but the trace remains very legible. Once at the crest, take the path to the right which will take you to the top of Roc Blanc.

6 - THE ROC BLANC

You have arrived at an altitude of 2542 meters !!
The return is made by the same path to your starting point.
