Col de La Madeleine (Savoie)

The road to the summit is gravel. Only 4x4. Impassable in winters. It's one of the highest roads of the country. The track to the summit includes several narrow and steep sections (up to 25%). It’s brutally tough with roughly sections, on very rocky, slippery path / ski piste at occasionally impossible steepness.
