David-Guenot: Track 4253 in area near France, Occitanie ()
Le Tourroc

Despite its modest size by Pyrenean standards, Le Tourroc is a spectacular summit with sheer cliffs on its S face, offering some mighty views. Easily accessed from the village of Sacoué. A rather direct +950m climb across a beautiful beech forest. Follow the yellow marks (PR) that will take you to the top of the ridge, where the views open at last, and follow the ridge to the right/west to reach the top, which has an orientation table under a wooden shelter. Good trails all along the way, only the last section across the woods (1420 to 1480m) requires a bit of care because of the steep and potentially slippery ground.
