The last 10 km to the top, from the D17, has recently been coated with a layer of gravel, centimetres high in places. This makes ascending and descending rather challenging.... read more

The last 10 km to the top, from the D17, has recently been coated with a layer of gravel, centimetres high in places. This makes ascending and descending rather challenging.

De laatste 10 km naar de top, vanaf de D17, is recent voorzien van een laag grind, centimeters hoog op sommige plaatsen. Dat maakt stijgen en dalen nogal uitdagend.

A climb that lingers. Not very even, so slightly or somewhat difficult to stay at your pace, with only the first few kilometres sporadic freight traffic from a local quarry . Then a lovely climb among greenery, birds whistling, water gurgling. It would almost make you meditate. It actually starts just past the "Gorges de Saint-Georges" in Axat and is then 18 km long. Until La Forge, it is a fairly open climb. Then sheltered among the trees until almost to the top. Road surface is quite good. Sensational "side stair descent" to Molitg with clear hairpin turns and long, straight sections . Nice anecdote : I rode past a gritty couple from the region.... He 79, she 82. Talk about character.

Een klim die blijft hangen. Niet heel gelijkmatig, dus iets of wat moeilijk om in je tempo te blijven, met enkel de eerste paar kilometer sporadisch wat vrachtverkeer van een plaatselijke steengroeve . Daarna een heerlijke klim tussen het groen, fluitende vogels, klaterend water. Je zou er bijna van gaan mediteren. Hij begint eigenlijk net voorbij de "Gorges de Saint-Georges" in Axat en is dan 18 km lang. Tot La Forge is het een vrij open klim. Daarna beschut tussen de bomen tot bijna op de top. Wegbedekking is vrij goed. Sensationele "bijtrapafdaling" naar Molitg met overzichtelijke haarspeldbochten en lange, rechte stukken . Mooie anekdote : Ik reed er een kranig koppeltje uit de streek voorbij.... Hij 79, zij 82. Van karakter gesproken.
