Stories, information and comments from Dent de Vaulion climbers
Story by Chris Patient from Geneva, Switzerland, submitted on 16/10/2014
There are several ways to reach the turnoff to the Dent de Vaulion climb. The easiest is west from the Col du Mollendruz. The longest is east from Croy on the Plateau. I found a third and very steep route from Vallorbe, north east via Le Plane. From Vallorbe I followed a mountain bike route towards the Fort and then turned up a very steep ramp signposted to the Dent de Vaulion. It was fairly good tarmac all the way. From Le Plane I had to descend a bit but I soon joined the main road just above Vaulion village and found the turn off. From there it was a hard climb past farms and a ski lift up through forests to the restaurant at the top. Fondue was the speciality, but I opted for coffee and cake before the long fast descent all the way to Croy. A highly recommended route to climb by bike!
