The little brother of the better known variant from Petit Bornand. Still a tough climb, where Climbfinder the climb slightly differently estimated than the local tourist office. The road climbs already from Thorens-Glières, and there are also already the famous signs along the way that prepare you for more than 13 kilometers of climbing. Not steep at first, but your legs will be full already if you try to speed up to Nant Sec. The climb itself is steep, but not so steep that your legs go lame. You're mostly between the trees, but sometimes you get a beautiful view of the valley you just came through. At the top, you turn around a corner, arrive quite suddenly at a sort of intermediate col and get a short descent. Because you can look far ahead here, you'll be doing 60+ km/hr into the climb and the last bit is quite easy. At the top is a large monument to the French resistance in WW2 (recommended to take a look) and you can use a terribly bad gravel-and-stone road to the other side of the plateau for the descent (recommended to first look at your tires).

Het kleine broertje van de bekendere variant vanuit Petit Bornand. Evengoed een pittige klim, waarbij Climbfinder de klim iets anders inschat dan de lokale VVV. De weg klimt al vanuit Thorens-Glières, en daar staan ook al de bekende bordjes langs de weg die je voorbereiden op dik 13 kilometer klimmen. In het begin nog niet steil, maar je benen lopen al wel flink vol als je probeert tempo te rijden naar Nant Sec. De klim zelf is steil maar niet zo steil dat je benen lamslaan. Je zit veel tussen de bomen, maar soms krijg je een prachtig uitzicht op de vallei waar je net doorheen bent komen fietsen. Boven sla je de bocht om, kom je toch vrij plotseling bij een soort tussencol en krijg je een korte afdaling. Omdat je hier ver voor je uit kunt kijken neem je 60+ km/u mee de klim in en is het laatste stukje vrij eenvoudig. Boven staat een groot monument voor het Franse verzet in WO2 (aanrader om even te kijken) en kun je via een vreselijk slechte gruis-en-stenenweg naar de andere kant van het plateau voor de afdaling (aanrader om hiervoor eerst even naar je banden te kijken).
