Plan to hike and bivi at Lacs de Petarel, unless the thunderstorms look too menacing, in which case I'll bug out :) Weather forecast https://www.meteoblue.com/en/weather/forecast/meteogramfive/44.803N6.169E

An attempt to get up to Lac Vallon for an overnight bivi. Unfortunately there was still too much snow on the ground, and I left my crampons at home. To be repeated later in the year.

Was planning to go you to Lac de Crop, but turned back at a steep section with a lot of soft soggy snow. I didn't fancy sliding down the gully, and it didn't look much better beyond the steep section. Will return later in the summer.

Straightforward route from parking at Les Fauges, however I'm not sure if the road up there is open... Might have been cut after Prabert. 4km, 720m climb.
