La Balme (Oisans) Hill Climb

Distance: 8.50km | 5.28mi

Attempts: 1

Directions

This climb starts with the first three km's of alp d'huez & then splits away to the right in the village of "La Garde" & follows the D211a up & along a very narrow & scary cliff edge(560 meter sheer drop!) road to the village of "La balme". I have attached a photo of the road as it traces it's way along the cliff, taken from the other side of the valley (see bottom left of page ... my pics 0037.jpg

Start Point: Where the foot of alp d'huez changes from flat to 10%!, rolling

End point: Highest point at 8.5km just befor a small descent into the village.
