Quite difficult as the climb is irregular. Asphalt is very narrow and also moderate. Add to this the fact that there are quite a lot of cars's. Should it be quiet though, this is really one to do! Nevertheless, I would like to do it again anyway.... read more

Best moeilijk, want de klim is onregelmatig. Asfalt is zeer smal en bovendien matig. Tel daarbij op dat er vrij veel auto's zijn. Mocht het wel rustig zijn is dit echt een om te doen! Desalniettemin zou ik hem sowieso nog wel eens willen doen.

Nice long climb. Indeed, the tarmac is not suitable for descending, many loose stones. This does not bother me when cycling up. Back via les vignes, descend and cross the water to continue the climb towards the sublime point, if there is anything left in the barrel.

Mooie lange klim. Inderdaad is het asfalt niet geschikt om af te dalen, veel losse steentjes. Bij omhoog fietsen hindert dit niet. Terug via les vignes afdalen en het water over om direct door te klimmen richting subliem point, als er nog wat in het vat zit

From le Rozier the best ascent is through the Gorges du Jonte, gently pedalling. Warm up because from the hamlet of Le Truel it immediately takes off. This path of barely 3 meters of asphalt winds its way along the enormous rock faces. A car that has to reverse to give right of way to a car going up should hope that its clutch plate doesn't burn out. Or even worse, his brakes will fail. The woman next to him has already put her hands before her eyes and prays for a happy ending. Would that be the reason why there are so many griffon vultures hovering over your head? The tarmac is not too good and this is another reason to do this climb alone. Descending is possible via le Bourgerie to les Vignes or to Meyrueis. This is a nice round trip of about 50 km in the morning or evening. The afternoon
It is here on the south wall much to much toil.

Vanuit le Rozier stijg je het beste door de Gorges du Jonte rustig pedalerend. Opwarmen want vanaf het gehucht Le Truel gaat het onmiddellijk de lucht in. Dit amper 3 meter geasfalteerd pad slingert met maar bar weinig vangrails zich een weg langs de enorme rotswanden omhoog. Een auto die terug in zijn achteruit moet om voorrang te verlenen aan een stijgende auto mag hopen dat de koppelingsplaat niet doorbrand. Of nog erger, zijn remmen het begeven. De vrouw ernaast heeft de handen al voor de ogen geslagen en bidt op een goede afloop. Zou dat de reden zijn waarom er zoveel vale gieren hier boven je hoofd zweven? Het asfalt is niet te best en een reden extra om deze klim alleen omhoog te doen. Afdalend kan via le Bourgerie naar les Vignes of naar Meyrueis. Meteen een leuk rondje van zo’n 50 km in de ochtend of avond. De middag
is het hier op de zuidwand veel te veel zwoegen.
