This climb can be reached via the Col de la Croix de Fer. The northern ascent
is over 6 km while the more technical southern acsent from Villargondran is over
20KM. Both ascents are on quite tree lined roads. At the top there is a small
village which acts as a ski resort in the winter months.
The Col du Mollard has featured in the Tour de France the latest being 2012.
