A gentler 3-kilometre climb will take you to "Gollet", heading towards Le Bettex, for the final 4-kilometre stretch at an average gradient of 9.5%. Once at the top, take a moment to look back and enjoy the scenery.

    For the more adventurous cyclists, when you get off at the Gollet crossroads, turn right towards Saint Nicolas de Véroce to join the other circuit leading to "Plan de la Croix". You'll still have 6 kilometres to climb.
