Vanuit Embrun (bij het Avia benzinestation) gaat begint de klim. Het gaat meteen goed omhoog. De klim eindigt boven een prachtige kloof.

Actually, the climb is longer. Goes up to Le Méans. Then about 10 km. It is on the D9 and part of the Route des Puys. That is a loop around the eastern part of Lac Serre Poncon. So Embrun, Les Puys, Prunières and Savines-le-Lac. Beautiful route of 45 km. Is well marked with every km a sign.

Eigenlijk is de klim langer. Loopt door tot Le Méans. Dan zo'n 10 km. Het is de D9 volgen en onderdeel van de Route des Puys. Dat is een lusje om het Oostelijk deel van Lac Serre Poncon. Dus Embrun, Les Puys, Prunières en Savines-le-Lac. Mooie route om te fietsen van 45 km. Staat goed aangegeven met elke km een bordje.
