Col de la Croix Fry-west

Profile Col de la Croix Fry-west

The mountain ranges around ThĂ´nes and La Clusaz are not very high but steep and beautiful. The valleys are particularly green but also densely populated. As a result, the roads in this region are often relatively busy. All of these features can be found along the road from ThĂ´nes to the Col de la Croix Fry. The ascent begins on the road connecting ThĂ´nes to Faverges (D12), namely at the junction to Manigod and the pass. The first three kilometers are moderately steep (6-9%). Then, before and in Manigod, two easy kilometers follow (2-6%). The real work begins right after Manigod. The first two kilometers after Manigod are particularly hard with an average gradient of 9.5%. Then, while approaching the pass, the asphalt gradually becomes less steep. Because in the second part of the trip the road is surrounded by fields and houses, there is a wide view in southerly and westerly directions (La Tournette, 2351 m).
