Mont Fleuri 2511 m F/AB-260 yesterday


#1

The plan was to activate F/AB-255 Mont Charvet 2538 m. I choose the wrong path in a crossing and did not want the descend down 100 m to correct my mistake. See

So I decided to activate Mont Fleuri 2511 m instead. However this was not very wise decision after all. I was on this summit two years ago, but could not remember the correct route to the mountain ridge leading to the summit. I was already thinking to cancel the activation. Finally I was on the ridge. This is quite narrow and steep on both sides. Slipping on the ridge can be fatal. I did activate the summit after all, but changing plans is not very good idea in general and adds extra risk to the expedition.

Thanks to G0NUP and HB9AFI for spotting.
