Le Plomb du Cantal - Face Nord (North face)
Add to my favorites
Route closed

Be ready for a gradual, yet long climb to reach the top of the Plomb du Cantal at 1,855 metres. It is however worth the effort if you are an experienced walker. It is the highest point in Cantal's great volcano and the highest peak in basaltic rock in France.
