This is not a route that attracts cyclists because of its scenery (most of the time it is in the forest) or its viewpoints (few) but because it is the steepest climb in the Grenoble area, similar to the Croix de Fer, and at the same time one of the most difficult in the region.

This is not a route that attracts cyclists because of its scenery (most of the time it is in the forest) or its viewpoints (few) but because it is the steepest climb in the Grenoble area, similar to the Croix de Fer, and at the same time one of the most difficult in the region.

From Séchilienne to the Col du Luitel, the road is steep, very narrow and often in very poor condition. From the col du Luitel to Chamrousse, the road is much wider (and busier), much less steep, and inevitably less picturesque.

Ce n'est pas une route qui attire le cycliste par ses paysages (on est la plupart du temps en forêt) ou ses points de vue (peu nombreux) mais par le fait qu'il s'agit de la montée à plus forte dénivellation dans les environs de Grenoble, du même ordre que la Croix de Fer, et en même temps une des plus grosses difficultés de la région.

De Séchilienne au col du Luitel, la route est raide, très étroite, et dans un état souvent très perfectible. Du col du Luitel à Chamrousse, la route est bien plus large (et plus fréquentée), nettement moins pentue, et forcément moins pittoresque.
