Pic de Turguilla

We (Susie, Jasper and I) had a plan to go up Mont Valier, but a late night and late start put paid to that, so we headed up to Gerac again, this time to climb Pic de Turguilla. After the ladder section down through the quarry we made swift progress up past the lakes and the Cabin Turgilla to the Etang de Reglisse. From here a cairned route heads east to reach the Etang de la Croisette, then climbs more steeply before attaining a path that links the cols on either side of the mountain. We headed for the col 2426m then followed the ridge eastwards to the summit at 2527m.

After lunch we descended northwards until we picked up the traversing path once more. At the col 2316m  we followed the ridge northwards to collect another 2 peaks the first with a large cairn and the second called Pic de la Croix des Lauzes (climbed with Ruby and Jordan about 5 years).

 A straightforward descent back to the car, spotting this little frog on the way.
