This is a real calves biter, climbing time indicates 13% but the boreden 15% and from experience I say go for the latter. It is a nice climb to do but you must persevere. The last part on the plateau is a bit boring but then you can recover a bit from the high % earlier in the climb. I do recommend ... read more

This is a real calves biter, climbing time indicates 13% but the boreden 15% and from experience I say go for the latter. It is a nice climb to do but you must persevere. The last part on the plateau is a bit boring but then you can recover a bit from the high % earlier in the climb. I do recommend descending via the Col du Benas if you have to go back to Privas, it is much better tarmac and wider roads, there you can descend more beautiful and safer.

Dit is een echte kuitenbijter, klimtijd geeft 13% aan maar de boreden 15% en uit ervaring zeg ik ga maar uit van het laatste. Het is een leuke beklimming im te doen maar je moet wel doorzetten. Het laatste stuk op de hoogvlakt is overigens wel een beetje saai maar dan kan je een beetje bijkomen van de hoge % eerder op de klim. Ik raad wel aan om te dalen via de Col du Benas als je weer richting Privas moet, is veel beter asfalt en bredere wegen, daar kan je mooier en veiliger dalen.

In my report on cycling in the Ardeche there is also a piece about this climb: http://www.fietsen-reizen-schrijven.nl/fietsen/fietsen-in-de-ardeche-beklimming-naar-berzeme-d7-en-cote-du-baron/

The climb gives you the feeling to be on a long version of the steep side of the Gulperberg. With sections up to 16%, the first 5 km this is a real calf biter and energy eater. You can feel this in your entire body.

In mijn verslag over het fietsen in de Ardeche staat ook een stukje over deze beklimming: http://www.fietsen-reizen-schrijven.nl/fietsen/fietsen-in-de-ardeche-beklimming-naar-berzeme-d7-en-cote-du-baron/

De beklimming geeft je het gevoel op een lange versie van de steile kant van de Gulperberg te zitten. Met stukken tot 16% is dit de eerste 5 kilometer een echte kuitenbijter en energievreter. Deze voel je in je hele lijf.

There are some very difficult parts in this climb and with 35 degrees it was tough. When I rode it, there was a lot of traffic, especially french people who went up and down very fast. I also found the road surface not very good, especially in the descent it bothered me and my chain.

Er zitten een aantal hele lastige stukken in deze beklimming en met 35 graden was het pittig. Toen ik er reed was er wel veel verkeer, vooral Fransen die erg hard omhoog en naar beneden gingen. Ook het wegdek vond ik niet best, vooral in de afdaling had ik en mijn ketting er last van.

Tricky climb the given percentages are not quite right, slightly steeper, nevertheless a nice slopestyle.

Lastig klimmetje de aan gegeven stijgingspercentages kloppen niet helemaal ietsje steiler, desalniettemin een lekker sloppertje.
