  • Starting at 7:30. The rise has been difficult because of the plates of ice and snow. But the view is breathtaking all along. We had the chance to meet Ibex on the first part of the climb. Some parts, snow and ice, require vigilance and good physical condition (or otherwise fall). We had to make a u-turn at 2032 m because the road was impassable and dangerous. But that beautiful images and bo d memories.

  • Beautiful ballad with a view of Lake Annecy. Put right shoe market as it takes to not have an accident. Plan what it takes for a long hike. Watch the weather changes quickly and a thunderstorm is possible in the summer at the end of day. For good walkers without great difficulty.

  • Great view throughout the course but beware the rise is pretty steep at the beginning and at the end do not get dizzy... (1200 m of elevation)
