Very difficult climb. At the top you have a beautiful view towards Lac de Bourget.
I found it very worthwhile.

Zeer lastige klim. Boven heb je een mooi uitzicht richting Lac de Bourget.
Ik vond het zeer de moeite waard.

A dry climb of barely 5 km, but with an average of more than 10% and a brutal initial section, it is best to manage your effort well. Well rewarded by the grandiose panorama below and a spectacular rocky landscape. Beware of the many gravels and even stones on the road, especially on the way back down!

Une montée sèche d'à peine 5 km, mais avec plus de 10% de moyenne et une partie initale brutale, mieux vaut bien gérer son effort. Bien récompensé par le panorama grandiose en contrebas et un paysage rocailleux spectaculaire. Attention aux multiples graviers, voire pierres sur la chaussée, surtout en redescendant!
