As we had commented in our successful although a bit wet previous excursion, a possible candidate for this week could be "Grand cret d'eau". It isn't very hard, 'though some people had largely complained last sessions. Therefore, if weather conditions are good enough my proposal for excursion 02 (this Sunday) is:
|Date:||Sunday, 15 May 1993|
|Site:||Grand cret d'eau(1621 m)|
|Climbing up distance:||560 m|
|Total hiking time:||6h|
|Starting point:||Menthieres(1066 m)|
|Meeting point:||CERN Main Cafeteria at 9.15 am|
|Access:||Menthieres in mountain/skying centre nearby Confort village. To reach this point one should take the road CD 991 from Bellegarde to Confort. One km before arriving in Confort take the first road (CD 16) to the right hand side till the mountain centre. There are enough parking places for attenders. The trip from CERN to Menthieres will take about one hour 15 minutes.|

It is convenient to emphasize some useful items: please do not forget to carry on (wear) raincoat, hat/cap and sun glasses, warm gloves, hiking boots or sport-footwear with thick and non-slipping sole, enough food and drinks for the own consumption. Spear dry clothes and after excursion confortable shoes are very convenient.
I hope weather conditions will allow an enjoyable excursion! Cheers! Jose.
