What a fantastic green gorge you buffalo up through. From a landscape point of view, it is one of the highlights of the south of France. Fortunately, nowhere steeper than 8% so you can look around and enjoy, but it is long. And continuous! The condition of the road surface is very good in parts, b... read more

A superb climb, admittedly the surface is not top notch, but the road is narrow and winding, with very little traffic, a slope that is neither too gentle nor too steep and above all constant. From then on, you can keep your pace until the top. I highly recommend it.

Une superbe montée, certes le revêtement n'est pas au top top, mais la route est étroite et sinueuse, très peu de trafic, une pente ni trop faible, ni trop forte et surtout constante. Dès lors, tu peux garder ton rythme jusqu'au dessus. Je la conseille vivement.

What a fantastic green gorge you buffalo up through. From a landscape point of view, it is one of the highlights of the south of France. Fortunately, nowhere steeper than 8% so you can look around and enjoy, but it is long. And continuous! The condition of the road surface is very good in parts, but sometimes less so. Be careful during thunderstorms with hard rain. Then you have a lot of gravel! On the col you have a water pump with ice cold water. In my opinion, worth a big diversions.

Wat een fantastische groene kloof waar je door omhoog buffelt. Landschappelijk gezien een van de hoogtepunten van Zuid Frankrijk. Gelukkig nergens steiler dan 8% zodat je goed om je heen kunt kijken en kunt genieten, maar hij is wel lang. En continue! Staat van het wegdek is op delen heel goed, maar soms ook iets minder. Pas op tijdens onweer met harde regen. Dan heb je hier veel steenslag! Op de col heb je een waterpomp met ijskoud water. Wat mij betreft een dikke omweg waard.
