This dream tour is recommended in summer, as you can start on the shady side if you start early.

It is characterised by a partly demanding and, in short sections, very steep ascent. The phenomenal view of La Tourche in the direction of Lake Geneva compensates for the agony.
The descent is lonely class. Especially the upper part is unique, but not for beginners. There is not a single metre of forest road, something you rarely find. A single trail leads without interruption over 1500 metres of altitude back to the starting point.
