On my quest for the HB9SOTA-award I activated two hills in HB/VD (HB/VD-39 and HB/VD-041) and a second hill in HB/NE area (HB/NE-005). Very early morning I drove (through thick fog) to Chalet de la Dent de Vaulion and parked next to the restaurant. A gentle walk brings you to Dent de Vaulion within 10 minutes.
