|How to get there||
This is a pass on the way to Col de Bretaye (1805m) on the north side. So see the description for that pass for more information. To climb up here from Aigle (417m) via Le Sépey (980m), Les Planches (943m) and La Forclaz (1261m) is quite a big climb on its own and if it is wet, it might be as well to turn around here instead of trying the gravel alternative roads to Col de Bretaye (the one around the Lac des Chavonnes (1697m) is likely the best and the gravel only starts on the other side and last for 1.4 km, but the last steeper stretch of gravel might be a bit hard with a road bike. The more direct gravel road from Vy Boveyre might be easier as it seems to avoid any steeper section, but it also looks like it might be a little less good and here there is no asphalt, although it is shorter.
If coming from Col du Pillon (1546m) or Col de la Croix (1776m), you will do well to start the climb in Vers l’Eglise (1126m). If coming down from Col des Mosses (1445m) via Les Voëttes (1341m), you would want to start the climb in Les Aviolats (1079m). If coming down from Col de la Pierre du Moëllé (1661m) or the main road from Col des Mosses, you take the road that you would have taken if coming from Aigle, via Les Planches (943m).
|Other comments||I believe the road to Vy Boveyre where only fully asphalted rather recently. It is rather wooded up on the climb, so it is much less exciting than climbing the Col de Brataye and instead descend this side.
