Col de la Croix Fry-east

Profile Col de la Croix Fry-east

To begin, this climb from St-Jean-de-Sixt to the Col de la Croix Fry follows the D909 towards the Col des Aravis. There is heavy traffic on the first three kilometers to La Clusaz. After that there is less traffic on the road, which becomes somewhat steeper (6-7%). At two and a half kilometers past La Clusaz, we turn right towards the Col de la Croix Fry. One kilometer further ahead, the most pleasant part of the trip begins, partly because the climb finally leaves the built-up area. To the pass still three kilometers remain. The first of these is the steepest (9.6%).

The climb can be extended with the ride from Thônes to St-Jean-de-Sixt. That adds another 164 climb effort points (cep) and 332 elevation meters. Unfortunately, this extension takes place on a road with a lot of fast driving traffic in an unimpressive landscape.
