Starting from Jausiers to the north, the climb is long and steady, rarely offering relief as you ascend to the highest paved point in France. There's lots to see including WWII military bunkers, little villages and the vast expanses of the French Alps. Due to its length and elevation is the most challenging climb in the ‘Route des Grand Alps’ from Thonon-des-Baines to Nice.
