Mooie beklimming die eigenlijk alles heeft wat je wil. Hairpins, uitzichten en mooie natuur. Dat alles zonder al te moeilijke percentages en zonder veel verkeer. Drie hoeraatjes voor deze mooie klim!

This is a very nice climb in the region. A great runner with hairpin turns forest and meadows. I really enjoyed climbing and descending this climb because it is very suitable for that.

Dit is een zeer mooie beklimming in de regio. Een heerlijke loper met haarspeld bochten bos en weilanden. Ik heb er onwijs genoten om deze te beklimmen en te dalen want daar is deze ook uitermate geschikt voor.

I find it a fun climb in the beginning, after you leave the forest and the climb turns into long straights it is a bit less so. As a descent, it's fantastic!

Ik vind het in het begin een leuke klim, nadat je het bos uit bent en de klim overgaat in lange rechte stukken is het wat minder. Als afdaling is hij fantastisch!

A varied climb with parts through the forest and meadows. The descent to Privas is nice with hairpin bends. In Privas you can take another col to Aubenas.

Een gevarieerde klim met stukken door het bos en de weilanden. De afdaling naar Privas is leuk met haarspeldbochten. In Privas kan je weer en een col nemen naar Aubenas.
