Story by David Robertson from Brisbane, Australia, submitted on 10/10/2011
Harder than you think because the sting is all in the latter stages. Only short but the last few km are leg burners. Great view at the top if a bit crowded.

Story by w vd lee from middelburg, The Netherlands, submitted on 18/08/2011
Depart from the town Vesonne at the south site of the lake. The climb is not very difficult and the views are great. The rood is in good quality (2011). Half way is a little tonw Montmin. At the top is is crowdy: there are restaiurants en all PARApenters of the earea are taking off here. The vieuw over the lake is graut. The decent to talloires is nice. Watch the tatuw head by the tunnel: nice!
