Description

It could be called "the Opinel ascent". Indeed, you cross the hamlet of Gévoudaz, where Joseph Opinel invented the universally known knife in 1890. This is also where your slope exceeds 9% and won't weaken before passing Albiez-le-Vieux, a pretty resort dominated by the Aiguilles d'Arves.

There are some kilometer markers
