The climb for the Col de la Morte starts gently just outside
Valbonais and after a series of false flats we hit the last 3 km
of the climb up some great Alpine switchbacks. The Col de la
Morte sits in the ski resort of the Alpe du Grande Serre which
is usually fairly quiet in the summer.
The climb from the north is used in the Marco Pantani Cycling
Sportive and the Alpe d'Huez Triathlon.
