A must-do if you're touring this beautiful region. The climb is fairly steady, with lovely views of Lake Geneva and the French Alps. There's a nice bistro at the top and a fine descent to Mijoux (the road is sometimes uneven with roadworks). Watch out for the traffic though... read more

A faire si vous faites un tour dans cette très belle région.
La montée est assez régulière avec de jolies vues sur le Léman et les alpes françaises. Joli bistrot en haut et belle descente sur Mijoux (la route est parfois irrégulière avec des chantiers de réfection). Attention cependant au trafic

That year in 2016, the road was being rebuilt. An incredible amount of heavy traffic to feed the construction site.
Apart from that a nice climb.

Cette année là en 2016, la route était en réfection. Une circulation de poids lourds incroyable pour alimenter le chantier.
En de hors de ça une belle montée.

Nice climb, not steep and good to combine with a tour via other cols. At the top, you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee.

Mooie klim, niet stijl en goed te combineren met een rondje via anders cols. Boven op de top kun je even van een lekker kopje koffie genieten.

Not too busy, good asphalt and sometimes excellent views of Lake Geneva. You can then descend via the other side (also easy to do) towards a beautiful valley where you can go in different directions.

Niet al te druk, goed asfalt en bij tijd en wijle prima uitzicht op het Meer van Genève. Je kunt vervolgens via de andere kant afdalen (ook prima te doen) richting een mooi dal waar je verschillende kanten op kunt.
