How to get there

If you come here after having climbed over the famous Col des Aravis (1486m) or from Col de la Croix Fry (1467m) and/or Col de Merdassier (1495m), you start the climb at La Clusaz (1068m) – a short and easy climb.

You could alternatively start after the bridge at Le Grand-Bornand (885m) if you came down the Col de la Colombière (1608m) and pass by Col de St Jean de Sixt (959m) to La Clusaz.

Finally you could start far down either Thônes (Pont du Villaret) (640m) if you come from Annecy or from St-Pierre (490m) near Bonneville. None of the climbs are any difficult apart from the longer approaches being longer, that is.

Other comments Fine views in the top area and it is in general a quite nice area, which also shows as there are usually many tourists here. (Photo from Google in the wait for my visit there.)
