In reality the pass starts as soon as you leave La Bourboule with 6-7 km at 3-4% then the pass, which makes it a tiring pass especially when, like me this year, you pass it in January after 90 km with a strong wind, For its final part, I climbed it 3x in one week, being a perfect pass to link Murol, as it is not long and quite easy with a nice view and a nice descent.

En réalité le col débute dès la sortie de la Bourboule avec 6-7 km à 3-4% puis le col, ce qui en fait un col usant notamment quand comme moi cette année, tu le passe en janvier après 90 km avec un fort vent, Pour sa partie finale, je l'ai grimpé 3x en une semaine, étant un col parfait pour relier Murol, car peu long et assez facile avec une belle vue et une belle descente.
