I know that every col everyone has a different experience with a climb. Depending on condition, weight, length, talent, and so on. And so I don't like it when someone wants to undermine someone else's experience.
But after reading this review yesterday, I thought I was in for an easy climb. That's how trivially the review above was written.
But what is written above 'Relatively easy climb' is 'quatsch' or 'zever in pakskes' as we say in Antwerp.
There is indeed a lot of traffic on this pass, that is correct. But this is not a relatively easy climb. The percentages in the profile here on climbfinder seem a bit low to me. This is without a doubt a tough climb. Dear fellow climbers, do not get caught by this. Soon after Heiligenblut you go to percentages towards 11% . Around the whole climb, except for a small descent before the summit, the percentages were around or above 10%, so if this climb is relatively easy you won't find any climb in the whole of France that is even a challenge... This is a killer climb. OK, it was 30 degrees when I did it, but a whole climb up to 10% you can feel it!
Oh yes, and on the other hand, it is just as hard, but even more beautiful!

Ik weet dat elke col iedereen een andere ervaring heeft met een beklimming heeft. Afhankelijk van conditie, gewicht, lengte, talent, enzovoort. En dus vind ik het ook niet leuk als iemand iemand anders ervaring onder uit wil halen.
Maar nadat ik gisteren deze review las, dacht ik dat ik een makkelijke klim tegemoet ging. Zo triviaal is de review hierboven geschreven.
Maar wat hierboven staat 'Relatief gemakkelijke klim is 'quatsch' of 'zever in pakskes' zoals we in Antwerpen zeggen.
Er zit inderdaad veel verkeer op deze pass, dat is correct. Maar dit is geen relatief gemakkelijk klim. De percentages in het profiel hier op climbfinder lijken me zelfs wat laag ingeschat. Dit is zonder twijfel een zware klim. Beste collega-klimmers laat u hieraan niet vangen. Vrij snel na Heiligenblut ga je naar percentages richting 11% . Om deze hele klim met uitzondering van een kleine afdaling voor de klim naar de top blijven de percentages stond rond en boven de 10%, dus als deze klim een relatief makkelijke klim is dan vind je in gans Frankrijk geen klim die ook maar een uitdaging vormt... Dit is een killerklim. OK, toen ik hem deed was het 30 graden, maar een ganse klim tegen de 10% die voel je!
Oh ja, en langs de andere kant is ie even zwaar, maar NOG mooier!

Relatively easy climb. Lots of traffic, especially motorcyclists.

Relatief makkelijke klim. Veel verkeer, vooral motorrijders.
