En fait c'est le col de la Lusette qui est un véritable chantier. Très beau mais terriblement difficile: à comparer avec les cols alpins, rien à voir avec ce qui se trouve dans le reste des Cévennes.

Après le col de la Lusette, c'est de la "promenade"

Col de la Lusette is a smear... Indeed, the average says little. The climb is very irregular. Never get j ein a rhythm. Pieces up to 20% and 200 metres further again 5 %. The rest of the climb to the Aigoual is then a breeze. On the Aigoual, the wind can pick up very suddenly. When having a beer and burger on top, we had to flee inside because of the strong wind. The descent was therefore quite tough. I did the climb from Vallerauge a few days later. That one is nicer with a moderate gradient.

Col de la Lusette is een smeerlapje... Het gemiddelde zegt inderdaad weinig. De klim is héél onregelmatig. Nooit kom j ein een ritme. Stukken tot 20% en 200 meter verder weer 5 %. De rest van de klim naar de Aigoual is daarna een makkie. Op de Aigoual kan de wind heel plots opsteken. Bij een biertje en hamburger bovenop naar binnen moeten vluchten wegens de harde wind. De afdaling was dan ook best pittig te noemen. Ik heb enkele dagen later de klim vanuit Vallerauge gedaan. Die is mooier met een matig stijgingspercentage.

Nice climb to Mount Aigoual via the very difficult Col de la Lusette. Do not trust the average percentage of 4%. Passages at 17/18% await you between Mandagout and cap de coste. Once past the col de la Lusette, the final stretch is easy except in strong winds.
At the top, the view is magnificent.

Belle ascension au mont Aigoual par le très difficile col de la Lusette. Ne pas se fier au pourcentage moyen de 4%. Des passages a 17/18% vous attendent entre Mandagout et cap de coste. Une fois le col de la Lusette passé, le final est facile sauf par grand vent.
Au sommet, la vue est magnifique.
