How to get there This is a quite hard climb from Sion (499m), but it is rather evenly steep and never very steep, so the main problem is that it is a fairly long climb. One does well to take the alternative smaller road to the top on the last part as it offers much better views (you may have to stop to go over or open a cattle fence).
Other comments It is 2100m at the viewpoint area where you cannot really cycle up to as it is on a terrace in the boring ski complex here. The views are best on the way up on the alternative smaller steeper road to the back of this complex. There are many alternive road up and down here in the area, I am only showing the shortest one.
