The passage between Martigny and Le Chable runs smoothly, 2-4% in a beautiful scenery but possibly affected by a lot off traffic. Right after turning hard left at Le Chable roundabout the challenging part of the climb starts. Road conditions are mostly excellent and while turning hairpin after hairpin the stunning scenery of the ''Massif Combin'' unfolds to your South. Entering ''Verbier village'' is where a few passages of 7-8% await you but they won''t spoil your climb. If you''re still smiling when arriving at the city centre you can go a few kms further to the ''Carrefour'' with a splendid view over the town and its surrounding mountains.
