Done on Thursday August 4th 2022, no need to draw a picture when you see the average slope you know straight away that it will be difficult.
As soon as you leave the road that leads to La Plagne the slope becomes very steep, I put everything to the left from the start to ensure the success, certainly it is not very long but you are constantly in the grip because the percentages vary between 9 and over 13%.
In other words, the only moments of recovery are on slopes at 9%.
In the morning it's in the shade on this side of the mountain, the tarmac is OK, the final stretch is a dead end for road bikes because afterwards it's a path that allows you to join the Rte du Sauget, the neighbouring climb described on Climbfinder, on the last 1.5km you have the impression of being almost on the flat given what you went through before... despite everything it still climbs in 8%.

Fait le jeudi 4 août 2022, pas besoin de faire un dessin lorsqu'on voit la pente moyenne on sait de suite que ça va être difficile.
Dès que vous qui quittez la Rte qui mène à la Plagne la pente devient très rude, j'ai mis tout à gauche dès le départ pour assurer le coup, certes ce n'est pas très long mais on est constamment en prise car les pourcentages varient entre 9 et plus de 13%.
Autant dire que les seuls moments de récupération se passent dans des pentes à 9%.
Le matin c'est à l'ombre sur ce versant de la montagne, le bitume est correct, le final est en cul de sac pour les vélos de route car ensuite c'est un chemin qui permet de rejoindre la Rte du Sauget l'ascension voisine décrite sur Climbfinder, sur le dernier 1,5km vous avez l'impression d'être presque sur du plat vu ce que vous avez subit avant… malgré tout ça monte encore dans du 8%.
