7km full on from start to finish! Really burnt out at the end but what a feeling of accomplishment to have reached the top, and besides the view is also a great reward!... read more

7km à bloc du début à la fin ! Vraiment cramé à l'arrivée mais quel sentiment d'accomplissement d'avoir atteint le sommet, et d'ailleurs la vue est aussi une belle récompense !

A very beautiful and tough climb. In principle, it is even harder than indicated here, because you reach the foot of it only if you first do the first 15 kilometers of the Croix de Fer from Saint Jean de Maurienne or another alternative is to first do the Col du Mollard and then descend a few kilometers. I did the first variant and then you have 22 kilometers with just over 1300 altimeters. Because there are 2 pieces of descent in it, you actually climb this in 17 kilometers, which means that you often see percentages of 8-9-10 percent. The road surface is getting less when you take the turnoff to le chalmieu, but the scenery is getting better. Especially the end is beautiful, with a view on the Aiguille d' Arves of 3500 m high.

Een hele mooie en zware klim. In principe is deze nog veel zwaarder dan hier aangegeven, want je bereikt de voet er van pas als je eerst de eerste 15 kilometer van de Croix de Fer vanuit Saint Jean de Maurienne doet of een ander alternatief is door eerst de Col du Mollard te doen en daarna een paar kilometer af te dalen. Ik deed de eerste variant en dan heb je 22 kilometer met iets meer dan 1300 hoogtemeters. Omdat er 2 stukken afdaling in zitten klim je dit eigenlijk in 17 kilometer, wat betekent dat je vaak percentages van 8-9-10 procent ziet. Het wegdek word minder wanneer je de afslag naar le chalmieu neemt, maar het landschap steeds mooier. Vooral het einde is mooi, met zicht op de Aiguille d' Arves van 3500 m hoog.
