Magnificent climb. Alternating parts from 5% to 11% but mostly around 7% to 8%. A typical Jura climb with lots of forest in the first 8-9KM and then some open meadows with cows (in summer), and a final tough final kilometre. The view is beautiful on a clear day. Just below the summit there... read more

Magnificent climb. Alternating parts from 5% to 11% but mostly around 7% to 8%.
A typical Jura climb with lots of forest in the first 8-9KM and then some open meadows with cows (in summer), and a final tough final kilometre.
The view is beautiful on a clear day. Just below the summit there is also a small restaurant with great fondue (please make a reservation) to replenish the calories :-)
Most of the descent is one-way, but watch out for hikers and animals.
Enjoy!

Prachtige klim. Afwisselend stukken van 5% to 11% maar het meest zo rond de 7% tot 8%.
Een typische Jura klim met veel bos in de eerst 8-9KM en daarna wat open weiden met koeien (in de zomer), en een finale zware slot kilometer.
Het uitzicht is bij helder weer prachtig. Vlak onder de top zit ook een klein restaurant met geweldige fondue (wel even reserveren) om de calorieen weer aan te vullen :-)
Het grootste deel van de afdaling is eenrichtingsverkeer, maar pas op voor wandelaars en dieren.
Enjoy!

Very cool climb through the forest. I did it in the morning, when I didn't see any cars. Certainly a reward if you arrive after a tough climb with steep sections at the top with beautiful views of the lake. Descent also recommended

Zeer gave klim door het bos. Ik heb hem gereden in de ochtend, toen geen auto tegengekomen. Zeker een beloning als je na een pittige klim met steile stroken aankomt op de top met prachtig uitzicht op het meer. Afdaling ook zeker aan te raden

I agree with Jesse's description, with the addition that the view from the top is breathtakingly beautiful (if the weather is clear 😊).

Ik sluit me aan bij de beschrijving van Jesse, met de toevoeging dat het uitzicht vanaf de top adembenemend mooi is (bij helder weer dan 😊)

Made on a long trip from Saint-Claude (FR): Nice climb around Lake Geneva. Quiet, narrow road with good tarmac up through the forest, with a partial separation of climb and descent. The climb starts easy, but from kilometer 3 to 6 it gets hard: average 9-10% with in between peaks towards 15/16% (according to my Garmin). Be careful not to blow up your legs there. The next part is more manageable, but soon the climb becomes more irregular: 5% and 12% parts. Kilometres below the summit it becomes more even, but the percentage increases (as does the number of flies). So plan it well, but then the climb is doable! The view on the summit more than makes up for the suffering: on a clear day full view over the Lake of Genevè and Mont Blanc. Recommended if you are on this side of the lake. Other lesser known options are: Col de Combe Blanche and La Baudichonne.

Gemaakt op een lange tocht vanuit Saint-Claude (FR): Mooi beklimming rond het Meer van Genève. Rustige, smalle weg met goed asfalt omhoog door het bos, met een gedeeltelijke scheiding van klim en afdaling. De klim begint rustig, maar vanaf kilometer 3 tot 6 wordt het bikkelen: gemiddeld 9-10% met tussendoor uitschieters richting 15/16% (volgens mij Garmin). Oppassen dat je daar niet de benen opblaast. Het stuk daarna is beter te doen, maar al snel wordt de klim onregelmatiger: stukken van 5% wisselen af met 12%. Kilometer onder de top wordt hij weer gelijkmatiger, maar percentage nemen toe (net als het aantal vliegen). Goed indelen dus, maar dan is de klim ook goed doenbaar! Het uitzicht op de top maakt het afzien meer dan goed: bij helder volledig uitzicht over het Meer van Genevè en de Mont Blanc. Aanrader dus als je aan deze kant van het meer bent. Andere minder bekende opties zijn: Col de Combe Blanche en La Baudichonne.
