I have rode the Madeleine twice now from La Chambre in 2012 and 2013 and each time it was deceptively tough. The gradient is continuous with no let up and the last few km from the ski resort to the top were some of the hardest I''ve done. One of the toughest but enjoyable climbs in the Alps. A must do :-)
