... wonderful villages up near the top that mainly service the ski traffic in winter and summer hikers. Two km from the summit of Col du Mollard is one such village, Albiez-Montrond. It can been seen in the pic from the summit view and where I filled my bidons.

I descended the other side of the climb and started with and Italian rider who I left behind a few k's down. He caught up at the bottom in the town of St Jean and said in broken ...
