Actually, they are two separate climbs because after La Tour, you descend at least 2 km before you have to start pedalling again in the direction of Udelle. During the 12 km uphill, after la Tour, we did not see anyone. And it is spicy! Especially because there is a 2 km long strip to 10-14% just before the end of the tunnel (tunnel on col 😉 ). After the tunnel (the col) you turn off to the Madone d'Udelle. Another 6km, but much less steep and with a mostly comfortable gradual slope. The view is overwhelming. View of the sea, and of the peaks of the Mercantour.

Eigenlijk zijn het twee losse beklimmingen want je daalt na la Tour toch zeker 2km af alvorens je richting Udelle weer op de pedalen moet gaan staan. We zijn gedurende de 12 km bergop, na la Tour, niemand tegen gekomen. En het is pittig! Vooral omdat er een ruim 2 km lange strook à 10-14% vlak voor het einde van de tunnel (tunnel op col 😉) zit. Na de tunnel (de col) sla je nog af naar de Madone d’Udelle. Nog eens 6km, maar veel minder steil en met een vooral comfortabel geleidelijke hellingshoek. Het uitzicht is overweldigend. Uitzicht op de zee, en op de toppen van de Mercantour.
