Nice climb. Asphalt is good. Although it is not a super famous climb, there is a sign every kilometer (from vertolaye) how far you are and what the gradient is. I went in the middle of the high season in the afternoon and it was quiet. Very few cyclists. Some cars and motorcycles. The route to the C... read more

Nice climb. Asphalt is good. Although it is not a super famous climb, there is a sign every kilometer (from vertolaye) how far you are and what the gradient is. I went in the middle of the high season in the afternoon and it was quiet. Very few cyclists. Some cars and motorcycles. The route to the Col is well marked with signs from Vertolaye. Beautiful views. At the top were some tourists who mostly with the car were and there is also a restaurant.

Leuke klim. Asfalt is goed. Ondanks dat het geen superberoemde klim is, staat er elke kilometer (vanaf vertolaye) een bordje met hoe ver je bent en wat het hellingspercentage is. Ik ging midden in het hoogseizoen in de namiddag en het was rustig. Erg weinig wielrenners. Wel wat auto's en motors. De route naar de Col is goed aangegeven met bordjes vanaf vertolaye. Mooi uitzichten. Op de top waren wel wat toeristen die veelal met de auto daar waren en daar is ook een restaurant.
