A sure foot is needed. Bring your hiking boots, walking sticks if you have them, enough water, a picnic (plus something to share if you feel like it :), sun screen, a cap, appropriate clothing... the usual!

The weather forecast seems to be quite good, but it never hurts to keep an eye on it: http://www.meteocentrale.ch/en/europe/switzerland/weather-les-plans-sur-bex/details/N-3515256/#2021-06-12
A friend of mine did this hike last week, and snow was not a problem at this altitude.

Pictures from this hike some years ago, so you can have an idea of what to expect: https://www.glocals.com/things-to-do/lausanne/60079.htm (don't look at all of them! - I didn't ... leave something for surprise :o)

Any questions, send me a PM or write on the "Talk" section below.
Hope to see you on Saturday!

And finally, the usual disclaimer: I am not a mountain guide by training or profession, you come at your own and sole responsibility.
