View over Martigny, from the beginning of the road.

Départ (northern side): Martigny (500m).


the first two kilometers offer a view over Martigny and the Rhone's valley and lead to a nice hairpin. In the middle of the vineyards, the climb continues in a very regular way (7-8%). The landscape is still quite scenic, before entering the forest. A sequence of four hairpins break the monotony and give a brief view over the beautiful surrounding mountains. The last straight line seems to be slightly easier.
