|How to get there||
The climb from Aigle (417m) should be the most consistently hard climb up here. If coming from Col de la Croix (1776m) or Col du Pillon (1546m) you can start at Le Sépey (1078m) or take the nice little road over Les Voëttes and start at 1110m. Or you can start in Les Planches if coming down from La Forclaz (1261m).
You can also start the climb in Châteux-d’Oex (903m) or Les Moulins (890m) and go via Col de la Lécherette (1388m) and then take off at the parking just before reaching Col des Mosses (1445m). You can also take a small road from Montbovon (797m) via Allières (with maybe a short stretch of gravel) to the Hongrin dam to La Lécherette!
|Other comments||Why be happy with finishing your climb at Col des Mossess, when you could continue up to another nicer pass from the parking on the northeast side of the pass? See Le Soere (1700m) for more on this climb. See also Col de la Pierre du Moëllé (1661m).
