Climbing from St Paul de Yenne. Fearsome climb, the last 8 km are terrible! Without a break, the counter showed between 11 and 14%! I found this side much more difficult than the climb from Lac du Bourget, done this spring. To be done for the challenge! ... read more

Monté depuis St Paul de Yenne. Ascension redoutable, les 8 derniers km sont terribles ! Sans trêve, le compteur affichait entre 11 et 14% ! J’ai trouvé ce côté là bien plus difficile que la montée depuis le lac du Bourget, réalisée ce printemps. A faire pour le challenge !

The last 8km are designed in hell. The second time I did the last part I was better prepared and I enjoyed the climb very much. Lots of shade, so not too hot in summer :-) Absolutely a must, this climb!

Nice climb! The last part of the climb goes on and on. Good tarmac to the top, and if you go down on the other side (towards the lake) you will encounter some gravel on the road so I did not dare to go down so fast. Nice view at the top, little restaurant (where you can only withdraw money from 10 euro) and a large part of the ride up had nice shade (early september, 10:00 to the climb began)

Mooie klim! Het laatste stuk komt er maar geen einde aan de >10% kilometers. Goed asfalt naar boven, en als je aan de andere kant (richting het meer) afdaalt kom je wel wat grind op de weg tegen dus daar durfde ik niet zo hard omlaag. Mooi uitzicht op de top, restaurantje (waar je pas vanaf 10 euro kunt pinnen) en een groot deel van de rit omhoog lekker schaduw gehad (begin september, 10:00 aan de klim begonnen)

Do not be tempted to start this climb at too fast a pace. The low gradient of the climb makes it possible to do so. Otherwise you will find yourself very much against in the second part. What a beastly climb. The view at the top compensates a lot.

Laat je niet verleiden om in het begin deze klim in een te hoog tempo aan te vangen. De geringe stijgingspercentage slagen hier wel toe uit. Je komt jezelf anders heel erg tegen in het tweede deel. Wat een beestachtige klim. Het uitzicht op te top vergoedt veel.
