Done in June 2012
The slope starts at the exit of Scionzier, the beginning is quiet for 2 kms in a slope of 4 to 5 %, you enjoy on the right a view on the Arve valley.
At the first real bend, in Blanzy things get a bit more serious for 4 kms, the road is beautiful, shaded but traffic is present even in the morning, it is 8:15 and it is already moving, some rare views through the gaps so dense vegetation, the stream on the left side of the road is the Foron.
Kilometers 6 to 9 before arriving at Le Reposoir the slope becomes much gentler, there is a water fountain on the right before entering the village but as it is next to the wall of a private house...no intrusion.
The crossing of the resting place is fast and at the exit the serious things begin because it remains approximately 8 Kms rather complicated.
The forest disappeared only some trees bring a little shade, beautiful sight on the solid masses on the left, the last 2 almost rectilinear kilometers are very difficult, it is necessary to avoid raising the eyes because all up there one sees the top.
Don't forget a windbreaker because it is often cool at the top of La Colombière
Good road and prudence

Fait en juin 2012
La pente commence à la sortie de Scionzier, l'entame est tranquille pendant 2 kms dans une pente de 4 à 5 %, vous profitez sur la droite d'une vue sur la vallée de l'Arve.
Au premier vrai lacet, à Blanzy les choses deviennent un peu plus sérieuses sur 4 kms, la route est magnifique, ombragée mais la circulation est présente même le matin, il est 8h15 et ça circule déjà, quelques rares points de vues à travers les trouées tellement la végétation est dense, le torrent sur la partie gauche de la route est le Foron.
Kilomètres 6 à 9 avant l'arrivée au Reposoir la pente se radoucit fortement, il y a une fontaine d'eau sur la droite avant l'entrée du village mais comme elle est accolée au mur d'une maison d'un particulier...pas d'intrusion.
La traversée du reposoir est rapide et à la sortie les choses sérieuses commencent car il reste environ 8 Kms assez compliqués.
La forêt a disparue seul quelques arbres apportent un peu d'ombre, belle vue sur les massifs à gauche, les 2 derniers kilomètres quasi rectilignes sont très difficiles, il faut éviter de lever les yeux car tout là haut on aperçois le sommet.
Ne pas oublier un coupe vent car il fait souvent frais au sommet de La Colombière
Bonne route et prudence

Are these percentages correct? I really remember the last 4 kilometers as 8%, 9%, 10% and 11% respectively. Really a wonderful climb though. Until the last part really a runner with 2 nice parts. But what a treacherous last 3 kilometres: you can already see the top for a long time but then it's really steep.

Kloppen deze percentages wel? Ik herinner me toch echt de laatste 4 kilometers als respectievelijk 8%, 9%, 10% en 11%. Wel echt een heerlijke klim. Tot het laatste gedeelte echt een loper met 2 leuke delen. Maar wat een verradelijke laatste 3 kilometer zeg: je ziet de top al lang en breed liggen maar dan nog echt even flink steil.

De la Colombière is climbed after Col de Romme, but from the direction of Scionzier. You skip the first part from Scionzier and after the descent from Romme you pick up the climb for another 7 km. Some steep parts and the last 4 to 3 km become only steeper and heavier. However, a fantastic environment and view to cycle. Really worth it.

De la Colombière beklommen na Col de Romme, wel vanuit de richting Scionzier. Het eerste gedeelte vanuit Scionzier sla je dan over en na de afdaling vanaf Romme pik je de klim voor nog 7 km op. Aantal pittige steile stukjes en de laatste 4 a 3 km worden enkel maar steiler en zwaarder. Wel een fantastische omgeving en uitzicht om te fietsen. Echt de moeite waard.
