|Start (north side): Saint-╔tienne-de-Cuines (483m).|
The first part (until Saint-Colomban-des-Villards) is not extraordinary.
The slope is variable between 7-8 % and the road is bad surfaced. The trees
protects from the sun.
After the village of Saint-Colomban-des-Villards (where the road is slightly descending),
the slope become much harder (sometimes 12%).
The last 2 kilometers leading to the final hairpins are quite killing.
The road is better surfaced, but it is quite narrow.
The last kilometer is terribly hard.
