A very pretty pass with very little traffic. First kilometre in the forest before the start of the real climb. Some nice twists and turns, a few flat spots and a sublime view of Marseille once you reach the top. The climb is relatively easy, with no major gradients, but beware of the wind.... read more

Très joli col avec peu de circulation. Premier kilomètre dans la forêt avant le début de la réelle pente. De beaux lacets, quelques replats et une vue sublime sur Marseille une fois au sommet. Montée relativement roulante, pas de gros pourcentages mais attention au vent.

Wonderful climb! Hairpin bends, phenomenal views. Climb starts in forest and as soon as you leave the trees behind you enter the hairpin bends. Great landscape to cycle in. Little shade and climb is on south side, so was very hot. Very worthwhile. Road surface is fine and traffic is not too bad.

Prachtige klim! Haarspeldbochten, fenomenaal uitzicht. Klim start in bos en zodra je de bomen achter je laat ga je de haarspeldbochten in. Geweldig landschap om in te fietsen. Weinig schaduw en klim ligt op zuidkant, dus was heel warm. Zeer de moeite waard. Wegdek is prima en qua verkeer valt het erg mee.

It's like a mountain pass in the Alps, with big twists and turns and a great view of Marseille and the coast once you get there. Quite rolling and very little traffic.

On se croirait dans un col des Alpes, avec de grands lacets et une superbe vue sur Marseille et la côte une fois arrivés. Assez roulant et très peu de trafic.
