Nothing special to tell about the first 7 kilometers. A bit more than a false flat uphill and nothing special. After the flat part (where you can refill your water at a church) the real hard work starts. It goes up approx. 3km with 11% average (parts of 13%) and it doesn't level off anywher... read more

Nothing special to tell about the first 7 kilometers. A bit more than a false flat uphill and nothing special. After the flat part (where you can refill your water at a church) the real hard work starts. It goes up approx. 3km with 11% average (parts of 13%) and it doesn't level off anywhere. So make sure you have saved energy for that. Heavy end piece, my travel companion and I jokingly called the climb the Col de la B*tch. The sign of the col is meaningless hidden in a small piece of forest, no sightseeing or facilities. It is also not the highest point (or the "end" climb), after the sign you have a short descent followed by a wall of 12% after which you are at the top. You can find this construction in the description from the other side on this site.

Over de eerste 7 kilometers eigenlijk niks bijzonders te vertellen. Iets meer dan vals plat omhoog en weinig bijzonderheden. Na het vlakke stuk (waar je overigens je water kan hervullen bij een kerkje) begint het echte zware werk. Het gaat ca 3km met 11% gemiddeld (stukken van 13%) en het vlakt nergens af. Dus zorg dat je daar energie voor hebt gespaard. Zware eind stuk, mijn reisgenoot en ik noemde de klim al gekscherend de Col de la B*tch. Het bordje van de col zit nietszeggend verstopt in een klein stukje bos, geen sightseeing of faciliteiten. Tevens is het ook niet het hoogste punt (wel "einde" klim), na het bordje heb je een korte afdaling gevolgd door een muurtje van 12% waarna je wél op de top bent. Deze constructie vind je bij de beschrijving vanaf de andere kant op deze site.
