Attempting Mont O’Reilly

My last attempt to climb Mont O’Reilly was the best so far. Although I didn’t have time to try for the top, I did find a very serviceable passage from the villas above La Savane to the dip between Mont O’Reilly and the unnamed peak to its southwest. The passage was clearly made some time ago and subsequently overgrown, but the going was pretty easy and there were lots of interesting insects. The passage ended in a field, which itself ended in a bit of forest, which ended at a stone wall that bordered a large pasture area that extends all the way to the slope of Pic Paradis across from the lookout point/beginning of the extreme zipline course. Really a terrific hike, and next time I’ll go earlier and see how close I can get to the top of Mont O’Reilly.
