Mijn eerste col tijdens deze vakantie en eigenlijk eerste alpen-col ooit. Mooie om mee te beginnen en niet te onderschatten. Er zijn mooiere en zwaardere in de regio maar omdat het mijn eerste was blijft hij bijzonder

Leuke col in het rondje Col de l'Arpettaz, Col des Aravis, Col des Croix-Fry, Col du Plan Bois, Col du Marais en als laatste de Epine. Makkelijk en lekker om op te knallen.

Het is een mooie klim. Heel rustig. Het is wel wat lastiger dan de grafiek van de klim suggereert, want mijn Wahoo gaf doorlopend stijgingspercentages tussen de 6.3 en 11 % aan.

Als je toch op een camping aan het meer zit, dan moet je deze klim zeker mee pakken! Verhaal hier boven klopt als een bus.

Un petit col sympa au départ de Marlens, une première moitié facile et la deuxième beaucoup plus compliqué.
A ne pas négliger.
La route est bonne, un peu moins si vous descendez sur le Bouchet puis Serraval, niveau circulation c'est tranquille.
Le matin à la fraiche car en plein soleil presque tout le long.
De belles vues sur les massifs voisins et la vallée en contrebas.
Bonne route et prudence
