Done on the 7th of June 2014 just after the col des Annes.
( At the time the road was very bad in places and redone in 2018 for the passage of the Tour de France.)
Then direction the défilé des étroits for the ascent of the col des Glières by its shortest side but with fearsome slopes.
There are 2 access roads from the valley, one from Petit-Bornand at the lowest point, the other by the road to Essert, I took the latter as I came from St Jean de Sixt.
After the bridge the road rises gradually until the small hamlet of Essert, then from the first bend the % become very strong, there will be no more respite except for a false flat at 2km from the car park (end of the ascent for road cyclists) do not let yourself be surprised because the slope starts again at nearly 14% and all rectilinear...Hard, Hard
As a cyclist who likes to climb I had never spent so much time in a dancer, the slope is really terrible, most of it on the 34*30 sometimes at 6-7km/h
Otherwise this pass is not terrible, bad landscape because of a lot of vegetation and not much shade, small narrow road and to reach the real summit by this side you have to climb 2km of a stony path, I didn't dare...
The plateau of Glières is a high place of resistance.
Good walk and be careful

Fait le 7 juin 2014 juste dans la foulée du col des Annes.
( A l’époque la route était très mauvaise par endroits et refaite en 2018 pour le passage du Tour de France.)
Ensuite direction le défilé des étroits pour l'ascension du col des Glières par son versant le plus court mais avec des pentes redoutables.
Il y a 2 routes d'accès depuis la vallée, l'une qui part du Petit-Bornand au point le plus bas, l'autre par la route de l'Essert, c'est cette dernière que j'ai empruntée car je venais de St Jean de Sixt.
Après le pont la route s'élève progressivement jusqu'au petit hameau de l'Essert, puis dés le premier lacet les % deviennent très forts,il n'y aura plus de répit à part un faux-plat à  2km du parking ( fin de l'ascension pour les cyclistes route ) ne pas se laisser surprendre car la pente repart de plus belle à près de 14% et toute rectiligne...Dur,Dur
En tant que cycliste amateur d'ascensions je n'avais jamais passé autant de temps en danseuse, la pente est vraiment terrible, la plupart sur le 34*30 quelquefois à 6-7km/h
Sinon ce col n'a rien d'autre de terrible, paysage nul car beaucoup de végétation et malgré tout peu d'ombre, petite route étroite et cerise sur le gâteau pour accéder au sommet réel par ce versant il faut se taper 2km d’un chemin caillouteux, je n'ai pas osé...
Le plateau des Glières est un haut lieu de la résistance.
Bonne balade et soyez prudents

Very nice climb! The plateau at the top is downright spectacular, and certainly doable with a road bike.

Heel mooie beklimming! Het plateau boven is ronduit spectaculair, en is zeker prima te doen met de racefiets
