This is a very steep climb on relatively bad road surface but nevertheless very rewarding on a quiet forest road closed to traffic. In winter it is part of a cross country ski route (Le Noir du Divonne) and there is still snow on it until late spring. It can be accessed from Divonne or Gex and Vesancy. The start is officially signposted just past Le Fleutron campsite beyond Villard above Divonne. From there it is a brutal 11% average for several kilometres until the road levels out at the end. From the Gex-Vesancy side it is not as steep but longer with some descent in the middle. Once at the top you can continue on to Le Vattay and descend the Faucille!
