Pic des Trois Seigneurs

With clear skies forecast for the morning a plan was hatched for a day out. The Dares elected to hang out, bathing in the lower reaches of a stream whilst the Sharps plus Oscar Dare headed off to climb Pic des Trois Seigneurs (2199m). 

Lots of vultures today particularly over the Etang d'Arbu.

Some wet sections of rock and persistent areas of snow made for an interesting ascent.

Oscar, Jasper and Ruby formed a good team.

The summit shot, reached just before the clouds rolled in.

Mont Valier above the clouds.

Decent across the snow.

The last few peaks on the ridge of descent were in dense cloud being blown by the westerly winds.
