Het is absoluut een gave klim van 43 km met een heel divers landschap... vanuit de bewoonde wereld, door bossen, langs rotspartijen boven de boomgrens en ineens kom je in een soort van maanlandschap. En het laatste stuk is letterlijk en figuurlijk breathtaking
Alleen de laatste 1,5 km is bagger. Allerlaatste stuk (500 meter) is gewoon niet eens te fietsen maar klauteren met de fiets in je nek over rotsblokken
Het is een supergave ervaring die je als fietser absoluut meegemaakt moet hebben. Daar sta je echt op het dak van de wereld!
De mooiste klim? Absoluut niet... maar wel in de top 5 van meest spectaculaire ervaringen op de fiets!

La montée par le barrage est certes agréable. La difficulté réside surtout en sa longueur et à la chaleur du coin . L' altitude aussi pourrait en handicaper certains.
