An alternate route to Col du Galibier from the Maurienne valley without taking Col du Télégraphe – not easy. Map, profiles, photos. Galibier was closed above the tunnel, but I managed to get to the Col.

Col de Chérel is another little known, deserted, tough, climb, from Lake Annecy. This is a relatively tough, truly quiet, loop in the Bauges Alps. Note: The top several kilometres of both cols are unpaved roads – I had my 29er mountain bike.
