In Les Diablerets we arrived on the Pillon, so we didn't cycle most of the climb, but we did cycle the last steepest kilometers, next to the Col de la Croix of course. Those last steepest kilometres hurt quite a bit. I don't know how this profile gets 8% and 7%, but the signs along the road say 8.5 - 8.5 - 10 - 8 from les Diablerets on. After conquering the Pillon you get a nice downhill part to Gsteig and if the wind is right you can keep the needle above 45 until Gstaad.

In Les Diablerets op de Pillon gekomen, dus het grootste gedeelte van de klim niet gefietst, maar wel de laatste steilste kilometers, naast de Col de la Croix natuurlijk. Die laatste steilste kilometers deden flink pijn. Ik weet niet hoe dit profiel aan 8% en 7% komt, maar de bordjes langs de weg zeggen vanaf les Diablerets 8,5 - 8,5 - 10 - 8. Na het bedwingen van de Pillon krijg je een heerlijk stuk afdalen tot in Gsteig en als de wind goed staat hou je de naald boven de 45 tot in Gstaad.

As an alternative to this climb of the Col du Pillon, you can also make it extra difficult by first climbing the Col de La Croix, which comes from the south after a descent into Les Diablerets. The Col de La Croix is about 200 meters higher and is reached via a nice quiet wide road. Recommended! The last piece to the Col du Pillon is also very nice, with the top 'Glacier 3000'-lift.

Als alternatief op deze beklimming van de Col du Pillon kun je hem ook extra zwaar maken door eerst de Col de La Croix te beklimmen, die vanuit het zuiden na een afdaling uitkomt in Les Diablerets. De Col de La Croix ligt zo'n 200 meter hoger en is te bereiken via een mooie rustige brede weg. Aanrader! Het laatste stuk naar de Col du Pillon is ook erg mooi, met als top de 'Glacier 3000'-lift.
