Departing from the car park under the hilly reservoir (small artificial lake), the climb alternates between slightly steep sections and others that are sometimes steep. Go up to the edge of the forest to the left of the ski lift, follow the track on your left (slight descent) and go up towards the Ballevard chalet. You progress in an open environment on the edge of the ski area until you enter the forest for the final part of the route. Once in the forest, the slope is weaker, enjoy this special forest atmosphere. A steeper passage on a few bends marks the final part to exit on the edge of the alpine ski slopes at the top of Mont Lachat. It's over for the ascent and it's time for the descent!

Some technical difficulties on the climb: the progression in the forest and the necessary conversions in the steep parts. Take your time to perform the movements that are essential for climbing uphill.
