Stories, information and comments from Col du Marchairuz climbers
Story by Michael Ronkin from , Switzerland, submitted on 30/08/2011
There is a much better nicer way to do the Col du Marchairuz. From Bassins (VD, above Gland), continue straight up the Route des Montagnes. It soon becomes a narrow paved road closed to traffic, and after a few kilometers of steep climb through forest, it opens up and brings you into magnificent open range pastures in one of the wildest parts of the Jura Mountains. The road naturally turns right (NE) and joins the Col du Marchairuz about midway down to Le Brassus. From there go around the Lac de Joux on the north side (much less traffic) and return to the Nyon/Gland area via the Col du Mollendruz. A wonderful day trip with moderate climbing and very little traffic.
