Going to Corsica - good easy climbs or challenging peaks please

Thanks John

Paglia Orba is relatively easy by the normal route but has some exciting scrambling near the summit. It's a dramatic looking peak.

I've never done Finch Route, but I'm told it's a great route.

You can hut to hut in Corsica too, look up the GR20, we did just a single night cause we were climbing mostly but was well worth it. Pretty sure it was Paglia Orba we did as well, mainly a long slog with some interesting up and down at the end and easy scrambling.

Pic von Cube had a good route (HS/VS) overlooking the GR20 and the Cirque de la Solitude which is very exposed and one superb pitch.

Have a look at Arete Nord Ouest on Punta Caletta. Lovely approach walk to a 4 pitch grade IV+ with some of the "tafoni" sculpted rock the island granite is famous for.
