Really enjoyed this climb. Challenging and lots of tree cover from the heat... but the main reason i enjoyed it was I rode ahead of the Giro race (2019) and the climb was lined with fans shouting and cheering, and even giving a little helpful push :-). There are some really tough stretches, and ... read more

Really enjoyed this climb. Challenging and lots of tree cover from the heat... but the main reason i enjoyed it was I rode ahead of the Giro race (2019) and the climb was lined with fans shouting and cheering, and even giving a little helpful push :-).

There are some really tough stretches, and the about 1km/1.5km from the top there is a straight 10% ahead of you which just saps the legs. there are plenty of steep sections, but when it's just a straight road ahead, it looks like a wall.

It's good to heave km markets as well, but these are wooden signs that add a real charm to this lovely climb.

Dodelijk zwaar. Voortdurend rond de 10% waardoor je geen moment van rust hebt. Het voordeel is dat hij daardoor wel regelmatig is en je dus van aan de voet een ritme kunt zoeken dat je tot boven kunt aanhouden. De kilometermarkeringen zijn houten kunstwerkjes, maar niet zo duidelijk leesbaar, zelfs aan traag klimtempo :)

Fait le vendredi 6 aout 2010.
Je trouve le profil Climbfinder un peu moins difficile que réellement.
Morgex pied du Colle San-Carlo.
Pour trouver la route d'accès, en venant de pré St Didier, il faut prendre le plus à droite possible dans Morgex, puis chercher et traverser le passage à niveau, le départ est quelques dizaines de mètres plus loin.
Après, c'est parti pour la grimpette, un panneau à gauche de la route annonce la couleur : Colle San-Carlo 10,436km altitude 922M, la pente est tout de suite très forte plus de 9% de moyenne..
La route est magnifique avec un revêtement nickel, toute la montée est bordée de sapins et la circulation automobile est faible, le rêve quoi!
la pente est si rude que les passages en danseuse sont obligatoires.
Les magnifiques panneaux en bois positionnés à chaque kilomètres tantôt à droite tantôt à gauche de la route et qui fournissent les indications utiles aux cyclistes attestent de la difficulté, le 3ème kilomètre 11,45% avec la 2ème partie très dure, un autre kilomètre un peu plus haut à 10,77% , à part le dernier kilomètre à 8,76% jamais la pente n'est annoncée inférieure à 9%.
Des superbes coins pique-nique sont aménagés en sous-bois, l'un un peu avant le sommet l'autre au sommet ,les tables en bois sont nombreuses.
Faites ce col vous en reviendrez enchanté, bonne route et soyez prudents

J'ai ajusté le profil et il reflète mieux la pente.
