Dear Hikers,

The weather forecast for Sunday looks excellent, so it is time to start the hiking season with a rather easy hike. There is still a lot of snow in the mountains, so we will go for Pic de Marcelly which is at Protected content . We still might encounter some snow fields that we have to cross. It is a circular hike that starts from Praz-de-Lys with a height gain of approx. 550m. On top we will have spectacular views on Mont-Blanc, the Aravis-chain and Geneva.
Please make sure that you are fit enough for this hike, that you have the required mountain experience and proper equipment for this hike.
We will start at 8:30h from Protected content and be back in the late afternoon, so please bring sufficient food with you.

PLEASE indicate if you have a car and can drive or if you need a ride (in the comments once you have signed-up). Without this indication your participation cannot be accepted. The ones needing a ride will each have to pay CHF 10 to the driver and share the road toll.

Please also only sign-up if you are sure to attend.
Lastly please note that I am not a mountain guide and that you have to make sure you are fit enough, experienced enough and have the right equipment for this excursion. You join us at your own risk!

I am looking forward to this beautiful hike on a sunny Sunday and looking forward to seeing you!

Marc
