Route description

Plan-Francey - Start

From Plan-Francey (1517 m) drop down to a saddle (ca. 1495 m) and ascend diagonally to the right of the opposing grassy ridge, passing some patches of wood and bushes, onto steeper grass and scree slope. This leads directly up to the foot of the north face of Moléson. The start, same for both ferratas, is at around 1620 meters; head left for Pilier, or right for the Face (Voie Hohl).
