Nothing amazing about this climb... I was only doing this to get back to Chamonix. But the road surface is really good, and the traffic pretty light, compared to the very busy other side of Montets. Nice to climb in amongst the trees and the view over the tops and into Chamonix are great. On it&... read more

Nothing amazing about this climb... I was only doing this to get back to Chamonix. But the road surface is really good, and the traffic pretty light, compared to the very busy other side of Montets. Nice to climb in amongst the trees and the view over the tops and into Chamonix are great.

On it's own, I wouldn't recommend, but getting over to do Barrage d'Emosson(from Chamonix earlier that day) and the descent on the other side back to Chamonix are pretty damn good and make it worth the trip (assuming you're in Chamonix).

Beduidend betere helft van de Col des Montets. Rustiger, lieflijker en kronkelt mooi daar de pas richting de top. Echt steil wordt het niet, een lekkere uitloper dus na het beklimmen van serieuzere beklimmingen in de omgeving.

Deze gefietst op de terugweg vanaf de Barrage d'Emosson richting Chamonix. Een stuk rustiger op de weg dan tijdens de beklimming vanaf de andere kant, mooi begin door de bossen, terwijl je L'Eau Noire volgt. Op een gegeven moment na een bocht naar rechts rijd je Vallorcine in, hier zijn wat kruispunten, maar het is erg rustig dus je kan eigenlijk in een keer door fietsen. Na Vallorcine slingert de weg rustig door, eerst een wat bredere vallei met her en der boerderijen en groene weides. Naar mate je dichter bij de top komt, word de vallei steeds smaller, en de weg steeds steiler. Echt steil word het echter niet, want al snel ben je bij het meertje op de top, en kan de afdaling richting Chamonix beginnen.
