What a stronghold! Long stretches at 15/16%. The rest oscillates between 12; 13%! But the climb is beautiful even if the surface is not great. To be done, for sure!... read more

Sacré bastion !! De longues portions à 15/16%. Le reste oscille entre 12 ; 13%!
Mais la montee est belle même si le revêtement est pas terrible.
A faire, c'est sûr !

Very hard, especially when you have no development...What a relief to get to the top and what a satisfaction to have crossed those passages at over 15%!

Très dur, surtout quand on a pas de développement...Quel soulagement d'arriver en haut et quel satisfaction d'avoir franchis ces passages à plus de 15% !

One of the local terrors, with the Bastille of Grenoble. The percentages on the graph are sufficiently revealing... Very small gear ratios are essential to be able to taste the excellent biscuits made by the nuns of the Chalais monastery at the summit :-)

Une des terreurs locales, avec la Bastille de Grenoble. Les pourcentages du graphique sont suffisamment parlants… Tout petits braquets indispensables pour pouvoir goûter aux excellents biscuits fabriqués par les religieuses du monastère de Chalais au sommet :-)
