The final haul up begins in ski station Méribel. Until June the pass was not suited to carry the yellow caravan. The road was accessible until the airport at approximately 1,800 metres, but six newly paved kilometres allow the Tour de France to include the Col de la Loze all the way to the top at 2,304 metres.

De Col de la Loze is an ascent of 21.5 kilometres long. The slope mostly hovers around 7%, but kilometre 18 and 19 stand out with 11% gradients, plus this section features sections at over 20%. The last 2.5 kilometres before the finish are equally explosive with an average gradient of almost 10%.

The road to the finish climb is no walk in the park either. The Col de la Madeleine is among the intermediate ascents, which is a horror climb with the first 4 kilometres rising at over 10%. The Madeleine amounts to 17.1 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 8.4%.
