An absolute pearl. From the lowlands you climb higher and higher to reach the massif of the Vercors. The massif seems to be enclosed by an undrinkable wall, but the road pierces a series of tunnels inside. The climb is constant and therefore not too hard. Good road surface, little traffic.... read more

Een absolute parel. Vanuit het laagland klim je hoger en hoger om zo het massief van de Vercors te bereiken. Het massief lijkt omsloten door een ondoordringbare muur, maar de weg prikt zich door een serie tunneltjes naar binnen. De klim is constant en is daardoor goed te doen. Goed wegdek, weinig verkeer. Het laatste kwart gaat de klim door de bossen heen, het uitzicht op de top is daardoor tegenvallend (lees: niet aanwezig).

Magnificent climb to the highest aslphalt road pass in the Vercors, lost in the grandiose beech forest of the Coulmes. Only the Molière road (which is not a pass) above Autrans climbs higher in this massif. No one can remain insensitive to the passage of the Nan gorges... not recommended for people prone to vertigo! For the perfectionists of great differences in height, it is possible to start from lower than Cognin-les-Gorges, by following the small "route de la Trainière" leaving from the D22A which runs along the Isère.

Note that may be of interest to French people like me: Abbé Pierre was a chaplain for the Resistance during the Second World War in Malleval, a village that was martyred by the Nazis in January 1944.

Magnifique montée vers le plus haut col routier aslphalté du Vercors, perdu dans la grandiose hêtraie des Coulmes. Seule la route de la Molière (qui n'est pas un col) au-dessus d'Autrans grimpe plus haut dans ce massif. Personne ne peut rester insensible au passages des gorges du Nan… à déconseiller aux personnes sujettes au vertige ! Pour les perfectionnistes des grandes dénivellations, il est possible de partir de plus bas que Cognin-les-Gorges, en suivant la petitre « route de la Trainière » partant de la D22A qui longe l'Isère.

Note pouvant intéresser les Français comme moi : l'Abbé Pierre a été aumônier de la Résistance pendant la deuxième guerre mondiale à Malleval, village martyrisé par les Nazis en janvier 1944.
