The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Expect a trail pretty steep with 20 hairpin turns. The summit offers breathtaking views over the Grand Paradis and Mont Blanc ranges. Its many twists, turns and narrows can pose a challenge to even the most experienced drivers. The road is not easy, though. Up, down, right, left all the time.
