Cycled up this road in 2018 because it belongs to "the 7 cols of the Ubaye valley". The climb is boring, the top uninspiring. The only nice thing is the view on Lac de Serre Poncon and Col de Pontis. A climb that is worth the effort!... read more

One of the several access routes to the Col de St.Jean, located along the reservoir of
Serre-Ponçon.
After a pleasant descent of 20 km. from Barcelonnette the wide climb starts in Le Lauzet-Ubaye on the D900 main road around the lake. You cycle along the cliffs and you must stop at the panorama parking (right side) with view on the lake and especially frontal view on the spectacular Pontis climb on the other side.
After turning off the main road, so that the lake is behind you, follows a not too difficult climb along a wide busy road with gentle curves and no extreme percentages to the sombre pass height. Fortunately there is a sign because you cycle past it without knowing.

Disappointing and boring climb.
Rightly removed from the "Brevet des 7 cols" of the l'Ubaye valley and replaced by the climb to Sainte Anne la Condamine (see CF)

Eén van de verschillende toegangsroutes tot de Col de St.Jean, gelegen langs het stuwmeer van
Serre-Ponçon,op gefietst.
Na een gemoedelijke afdaling van 20 km.vanuit Barcelonnette start de brede klim in Le Lauzet-Ubaye op de D900 hoofdweg rond het stuwmeer. Men fietst kronkelend langs de rotswanden en je moet zeker stoppen aan de panorama parking (rechter zijde) met uitkijk op het meer en vooral frontaal zicht op de spectaculaire Pontis klim aan de overzijde.
Na het afdraaien van de hoofdweg, zodat het meer achter je komt te liggen, volgt een niet al te moeilijke klim langs een brede drukke weg met flauwe bochten en zonder extreme percentages tot de sombere pashoogte. Er staat gelukkig een bord want je fietst er voorbij zonder het te weten.

Tegenvallende saaie klim.
Terecht afgevoerd van het "Brevet des 7 cols" van de l'Ubaye vallei en vervangen door de klim naar Sainte Anne la Condamine (zie CF)

In 2018 deze weg naar boven gefietst omdat deze nu eenmaal bij "de 7 cols van de Ubaye vallei" behoort. De klim is saai, de top weinig inspirerend. Het enige mooie onderweg is het uitzicht op Lac de Serre Poncon en Col de Pontis. Een beklimming die wél de moeite waard is!

Today I climbed my first col.
The beginning was a bit hard but after that it was not so bad.
Nice views of the lake though
Greetings Mila

Vandaag mijn eerste col beklommen.
Het begin was even afzien maar daarna viel het mee.
Wel mooie uitzichten op het meer
Groetjes Mila
