Galibier is around 2900m/9500ft in elevation, so the combination of the altitude, the cold, the wind, and the accumulation of the day's climbs took its toll.

8:30 am so everyone was ready to head in. As we continued our decent we had an
unwelcome surprise. The road we were supposed to take was closed due to
construction. The only way home, take a detour that involved a 2.5 mile climb

beginning to melt a bit. The melting roads made the ascent seem that much
