La Chatte Pendue peaks at 899m where you have all-encompassing views of the Champ du Feu range, the Climont and the Donon. But what makes the site so unique is its unusual name that has all sorts of stories surrounding it. It used to be called "Pirre hhatte pendaïe" meaning tall hanging stone. The guttural pronunciation of "H" or transcription mistakes turned the "hhatte" into "chatte" meaning female cat. So in 1847, a beautiful handwritten Eaux et Forêts map mentions the Pierre de la Chatte Pendue.
