Profile les Orres

In terms of elevation meters (973) the climb from Embrun to the highest part of les Orres (the winter sports resort les Orres 1800) is an almost average ascent. Because the slope varies quite a bit, long, steep sections are missing. But actually the road is nowhere really steep; not a single 500 meter segment exceeds 9%. During the ride wide views in northern and western direction can be enjoyed. The road is wide, busy with traffic and has a good surface but unfortunately there is hardly any shade. When you get to Les Orres 1800, you should, at the T-junction, continue straight ahead and not turn left, and then continue cycling to the highest point of the road.
