I have just started working on creating a list of ca. 130 summits over 1500m with a 20m+ prominence in the Massif Central (France), and I have just set myself the challenge of climbing them all before the end of the year. This walk, actually a personal version of the Tour du Sancy, allowed me to take in 11 summits, including the highpoint of the Massif Central, Puy de Sancy (1885m). The initial plan was a full tour of the Massif du Sancy, which included another 7 tops and implied a lot of climbing and a fair extra distance to walk but due to the heat and timing I thought I'd shorten it. I started directly from the Camping de la Grande Cascade, which has a private access to the upper part of a beautiful waterfall, which I passed by on the way back. Note that the higher part of the walk between Puy Ferrand (1854m) and Puy de Sancy was the least enjoyable, with swarms of tourists and... (fortunately harmless) midges !!
