The attached profile does not detail the most classic ascent which is done entirely on the D1090 on a main road linking France to Italy, 4km longer and therefore easier.
The variant proposed on ClimbFinder is the Tour de France type, you have to leave the main road just after the Noyeray in direction of Montvalezan then Hauteville.
This variant is quieter and also much prettier in terms of landscapes than the D1090, however the percentages are severe with 6KMs between 8 and over 9 %
We join the main road at about 5km from the Rosière and we can put the gear back on immediately, we also find the heavy traffic until the top, that is to say for another 12 km.
After the Rosière, if you haven't kept your pedal to the metal, it's tiring because you can see the Statute of the Petit St Bernard, but the road is still long, the cold is sometimes felt and the wind can blow quite hard.
During the descent, you should avoid playing kamikaze because some places are subject to the rigours of winter and the asphalt is cracked.
Good road and prudence
Ps: Photos attached of my last ascent on June 1, 2019 between walls of snow, shortly after the opening of the pass.

Le profil ci-joint ne détaille pas l’ascension la plus classique qui s’effectue en totalité sur la D1090 sur une route à grande circulation qui relie la France à L’Italie, plus longue de 4km et donc aussi plus facile,.
La variante proposée sur ClimbFinder est celle type Tour de France, il faut quitter la route principale juste après le Noyeray en direction de Montvalezan puis Hauteville.
Cette variante est plus calme et aussi bien plus jolie au niveau paysages que par la D1090, par contre les pourcentages sont sévères avec 6KMs entre 8 et plus de 9 %
On rejoint la route principale à environ 5km de la Rosière et on peut remettre du braquet immédiatement, on retrouve aussi la circulation intense jusqu’au sommet, c’est-à-dire pendant encore 12 bornes.
Après la Rosière si on n’en a pas gardé sous la pédale, c’est usant moralement car on aperçois la Statut du Petit St Bernard, mais la route est encore longue, le froid se fait parfois sentir et aussi le vent qui peut souffler assez fort.
Lors de la descente il faudra éviter de jouer les kamikazes car certains endroits subissent les rigueurs de l’hiver et le bitume est crevassé.
Bonne route et prudence
Ps : Photos jointes de ma dernière ascension le 1 juin 2019 entre des murs de neige, peu après l’ouverture du col.

Very nice climb! Is a must for me in this area. From Bourg st Maurice climbed and descended to La Thuile for Italian coffee. From France a long climb but a 'runner'. It never gets very steep and you often have nice views. Until La Rosiere it is a bit more crowded, but after this ski resort it becomes quieter. Lots of cars and motorcycles wanting to take a look at the border. From La Thuile, the climb is a lot shorter and steeper, but also good to do here.

Hele mooi klim! Is een aanrader wat mij betreft in deze omgeving. Vanuit Bourg st Maurice beklommen en afgedaald naar La Thuile voor Italiaanse koffie. Vanuit Frankrijk een lange klim maar wel een 'loper'. Het wordt nergens echt heel steil en je hebt vaak mooi uitzicht. Tot La Rosiere is het wat drukker, maar na dit skioord wordt het rustiger. Wel veel auto- en motorverkeer dat een kijkje op de grens wil nemen. Vanuit La Thuile is de klim een stuk korter en steiler, maar ook hier goed te doen.

Is this a nice climb too, compared to what else is around?

Is dit ook een mooie klim, in vergelijking met wat in de buurt nog meer te vinden is?

Climbed on 12 July from Italy. Long, about 23 km, but not very steep. Down below much traffic, but further to the top quite quiet. Road surface on the Italian side much better than the French part.

Op 12 juli vanuit Italië beklommen. Wel lang, zo'n 23 km, maar niet erg steil. Beneden veel verkeer, maar verder naar boven vrij rustig. Wegdek aan de Italiaanse kant veel beter dan het Franse deel.

Beautiful col (cycled 28-8), great to start in and around Bourg Saint Maurice! Col changes according to the kilometre markers between 4 and 6% and is therefore nowhere really steep, but 26 km long. Road surface is good, so that descending is also good. The road was on the Monday that we cycled not very busy. Recommended!

Prachtige col (28-8 gefietst), heerlijk om in en rond Bourg Saint Maurice mee te starten! Col wisselt volgens de kilometerpaaltjes tussen de 4 en 6% en is daarmee nergens echt heel steil, maar wel 26 km lang. Wegdek is prima, waardoor dalen ook goed gaat. De weg was op de maandag dat wij het fietsten niet heel erg druk. Aanrader dus!

Yesterday, I climbed this col and started from the Bourg Saint Maurice campground. The climb starts directly in the direction of Seez and will not level off anywhere until the 2188m. A great runner! Recommended for the novice climber (like myself)

Ik heb gister deze col beklommen en gestart vanaf de camping in Bourg Saint Maurice. De klim begint direct in de richting van Seez en zal tot de 2188m hoogte nergens afvlakken. Een heerlijke loper! Aanrader voor de beginnende klimmer (zoals ik zelf)
