Dear Fellow Hikers,

Our beloved leader, Peak-Peter, is tied-up this weekend – which is charged in dollars by the hour and is really rather quite expensive…

So, in his absence, and stepping into his decade-old boots, Marc Koehnemann and I are hosting what may well be the final* mountain adventure of the year... *Depending on whether Peak-Peter remembers the “safe-word” or not…

The weather forecast is for dry, sunny conditions.

So, I hear you musing, what does this hike have to offer?!

Well, Peter, in a moment of sober reflection, once wrote:

It is the beautiful Pointe d'Areau Protected content , with great views on the Bargy and Aravis chains and the Mont Blanc.!

So, buy one get 2 free is what he’s basically saying!

This hike leads us along the back of a mountain continuously climbing but never really steep.

Technically it is an easy hike but rather long. The ascent will be around Protected content . So participants should be physically rather fit.

On the way back we will take a slightly different path so that it is more or less a circular hike.

The entire hike takes around Protected content .

We are meeting on Sunday on Place de Neuve in front of Conservatoire de Musique for a prompt departure at 08:45am!
Late comers will be issued "I love Trump hats"

Proper equipment (especially a pair of proper hiking shoes) is mandatory! Sun protection, hiking poles and at least 1,5 liters of water are highly recommended!

Standard Disclaimer about no guns, no baby pandas and join at your own desire….

For our own safety, the group should avoid calling this hike a caravan of criminals moving in the direction of the American border...
