The climb takes plenty of effort and patience, but if you take the time to recover at the top, the superb descent makes it all worth it.
Map and points of interest
A beautiful ascent above Val Cenis, first on a track, then on a mountainside path across chamois country. In spring, the snow melts fairly quickly on these south-facing slopes, making it a good spot for animals to graze. The descent is a must for mountain-bikers who enjoy a technical challenge. Once past Termignon, the return trip to Val Cenis is via the Chemin du Petit Bonheur. From the chamois' pastureland you can admire a 180° panoramic view over the valley and surrounding mountains.
