A lovely and tough climb in a beautiful wooded area. Because of this, you cycle a lot in the shade. The road surface is terrible in some parts, with holes and (especially in the middle) stones on the road. The gradient was not too bad, although it is still steep because of the road surface.

A lovely and tough climb in a beautiful wooded area. Because of this, you cycle a lot in the shade. The road surface is terrible in some parts, with holes and (especially in the middle) stones on the road. The gradient was not too bad, although it is still steep because of the road surface. Little traffic on the road (cycled around 11:00). The scenery is beautiful on high mountains and with a swirling river almost constantly at your side. However, when descending, you cannot (while riding) enjoy the view. You need your full attention for descending on this steep and bad road! Refilling water is possible in Le Villard.

Een heerlijke en pittige klim in een prachtige beboste omgeving. Hierdoor fiets je veel in de schaduw. Het wegdek is op sommige delen verschrikkelijk, met gaten en (vooral in het midden) steentjes op de weg. Het stijgingspercentage viel mij mee, alhoewel het alsnog pittig is door het wegdek. Weinig verkeer op de weg (gefietst rond 11:00u). De omgeving is prachtig op hooggebergte en met een kolkende rivier bijna constant aan je zijde. Bij het afdalen kan je echter niet (al rijdend) van het uitzicht genieten. Je hebt de volle aandacht nodig voor het afdalen op deze steile en slechte weg! Water bijvullen is mogelijk in Le Villard.

Despite the bad road surface and the many stones on the road, this is one of the most beautiful climbs in the area. Nowhere else do you get so deep into the heart of the Ecrins massif. In terms of traffic, it is here in the summer months in the morning busy with cars of hikers who go to the refuge les Bans, these drive around 15:00 back. In the meantime you have the climb for yourself. Outside July and August you are always alone here.

The view is amazing: beautiful high mountains, large waterfalls, forests full of larches and roaring rivers. Highly recommended if you are not afraid of a lesser road surface.

Ondanks het slechte wegdek en de vele stenen op de weg is dit een van de mooiste beklimmingen in de buurt. Nergens kom je zo diep in het hart van het Ecrins massief. Qua verkeer is het hier in de zomermaanden 's ochtends druk met auto's van wandelaars die naar de refuge les Bans gaan, deze rijden rond 15:00 weer terug. In de tussenperiode heb je de klim voor jezelf. Buiten juli en augustus rij je hier altijd alleen.

Het uitzicht is verbluffend: mooie hoge bergen, grote watervallen, bossen vol lariksen en bulderende rivieren. Een echte aanrader als je niet bang bent voor een minder wegdek.

Super nice, really a must. And do not be put off by the above description of the road surface. It's all true but most of it is fine and if you pay attention you should be fine with an expensive carbon bike. Because it is not a through road you really feel alone in the mountains!

Super mooi, echt een aanrader. En laat je niet afschrikken door bovenstaande omschrijving van het wegdek. Het is allemaal waar maar het grootste deel is prima en als je verder een beetje oplet moet het ook met een duur carbonfietsje best goed komen. Omdat het geen doorgaande weg is waan je je echt alleen in de bergen!
