Wow! This might be the climb that cyclists dream about. The climb really begins after you turn off the main highway onto the Route des Lacs. Then you alternate being in forests with switch backs, much of the route going along a river. The last 13.5k average over 7.5%. With about 4k to go you start seeing some very nice mountain scenery and you get your first look at the dam at the end of the climb. The last 1k is tightly stacked switch backs next to the face of the dam. There is a small seasonal kiosk at the top.
