From South.
Following the bike route in St Pierre the signed "boucle" traverses up a shoulder of the Chne. de Belledonne in a straight line. Surprisingly it keeps on climbing even after the junction with the road to Col de Grand Cucheron.

From North. (described downwards) The road stays in cool shade, and once in a while permits a view onto opposing peaks around Grand Arc (2482m), before bike traffic is discharged into the Isere Valley
