Description

The second half of the full tour of Lac de Castillon. Its not as good as the west side but if you are looking for a long day of 50km + it makes a good circuit.

After a fair bit of riding on the road hard climb leads to great traverse line on the side of Crete de Cremon.

Coutour around the ridge and the descent is steep and very bouldery in lower section.

Easy to lose the path in mid way point of descent.

Return to St Andre via Angle pleasent but unremarkable road and forest tracks.
