Plus de Cirque de la solitude

The Cirque de la solitude has been closed since the landslide that claimed the lives of 7 hikers in June 2015. They have removed all ladders, chains and signs to discourage hikers from taking that route.

The new trail is considered as demanding and takes two hours more. We reached over 2600m, almost as high as one can get to in Corsica.

We were supposed to see both sides of the island from the top but were in fog. We walked the last hour to the refuge in the rain.

 

 

Le Cirque de la solitude est fermé depuis le gigantesque éboulement qui a emporté 7 randonneurs en juin 2015. Les échelles, chaînes et balisage ont été enlevés afin de décourager les randonneurs de l’emprunter malgré tout.

Le nouvel itinéraire est considéré aussi difficile et prend 2h de plus. Nous sommes montés à plus de 2600m, quasiment l’altitude la plus élevée de Corse.

Normalement, il est possible de voir les deux mers mais nous étions dans le brouillard. Nous avons marché la dernière heure jusqu’au refuge sous la pluie.
