Roadway:  As one would expect of a major road in the richest country in the world, the route to Arcalis is pristine with a narrow to no shoulder throughout the climb - less shoulder higher in the climb. 

Traffic:  This depends upon when you leave.  Since the first half of the climb is near and through towns, we recommend you do this climb early on a weekend - traffic can be moderate to heavy, but is quite manageable on the weekend early. 

Tunnel:  There is a short tunnel at kilometer 1.5 and a 300 meter tunnel at 7-8% grade beginning at kilometer 2.  There is a narrow bike lane through the tunnel but bring taillights and consider a headlight as well. 

Parking:   There are many public paid parking lots in Les Escales wheer the climb begins - the 2 closest are 350 meters north (Map).  Here is a map of all parking in Les Escales. 
Bring lights for the 2 tunnels on this route.
