TK/TK-008 and TK/TK-031

july 3 2019

TK008 1

TK-008 Monte Renosu - 2352 m - JN42NB64
TK-031 Monte Giovanni - 1950 m - JN42NA80
22.5 km + 1350 m

The start for this hike is from the ski station "Val d'Ese" that can be reached after the village of Bastelica.
It's a quite long hike that takes almost a day if both summits are activated. But it's probably one of the most sightseeing hikes one can make in Corsica. Several lakes and the famous "Pozzis" are some of the highlights.

Two more summits doable in one day.
The start is in the middle of the village of Rosazia. In a curve, a small yellow sign indicates "Forêt de Liviu". I followed the yellow marks until i reached a hut at altitude 1390m where there is also a fresh source.

TK053 L'incinosa JN42KF12 +500 m 3.5 km
TK072 Capu San'Anghuilu JN42JF83 +170 m 2 km
2 summits doable in one day.
The start is at the "Col di Sevi", both are on each side of the pass and cairns are helping to find the tracks. Very easy summits, with absolutely no difficulties. Probably the easiest 2 summits expedition in Corsica.

TK/TK-015 & TK007

tk007 1

Punta Migliarello TK/TK015 - 2254 m asl - JN42MD81
Monte d'Oro - TK/TK-007 2389 m asl - JN42ND12

Very long hiking if both summits are done the same day !
The start can be done at different places at the "Col de Vizzavona" 1100m and follows the famous GR20. Follow the red/white marks until you reach the pass "Bocca di Muratello" at 2020m asl where you leave the GR20 and aim the summit of "Punta Migliarello" TK-015 azimut SW.
Follow the cairns along the ridge and the summit is easy to reach at 2254 m. The summit is flat and grassy and allows all sort of antennas and even overnighting with a tent.

Nice hike with a very nice view from the summit and a beautiful cross on top. About 13 km long and + 1000m climbing.
I started from the parking along the road close to the "Païsone d'Aïtone". The path is rather tricky to follow, too many stones showing different directions, more specificaly in the forest.
My tracks seems to be the safest way to reach the summit.

Not too much activity and some QRN led to only 20 QSOs with 2 S2S.

Short walk to this summit but very steep, +420 m for 1,5 km...
33 QSOs from which 7 S2S, all on 40 m CW !  CW rocks !!
A log sheet was blown away by the wind and stayed in the air for about 5 minutes, went very high above me and had the good idea to fall down only a few meters away...
