I definitely recommend this climb, very cool to do and really tough. Go very early before people are at work. So with sunrise in the summer (around 5 & 30) there is nobody, then you can unseen up and back. The employees of the museum and the train start around 7:45, then you should be gone. Good... read more

Superb climb, but extremely difficult despite its short distance of 5.8km one should not neglect its 10% average grade. Moreover if we consider the beginning of this climb at the barrier (4km from the summit), the average slope is beyond 11%... A little development is needed.

Superbe ascension, mais extrêmement difficile malgré sa courte distance de 5,8km il ne faut pas négliger ses 10% de moyenne. De plus si l'on considère le début de cette ascension au niveau de la barrière (à 4km du sommet), la pente moyenne est au delà des 11%... Il faut prévoir un petit développement.

Can someone tell me why it is forbidden to climb the Puy de Dôme?
It's actually on my bucket list but this way it becomes very difficult. I once climbed it years ago on my motorcycle when it was still allowed, which was a fantastic ride.
But by bike would be the crowning glory, otherwise I might have to do it on foot as a fanatic hiker.

Kan er van de leden iemand vertellen waarom het tegenwoordig verboden is de Puy de Dôme op te fietsen?
Staat eigenlijk op mijn bucket list maar op die manier wordt het wel erg moeilijk. Ik ben er jaren geleden ooit eens opgereden met mijn motorfiets toen dat nog mocht, wat een fantastische rit was.
Maar met de fiets zou de kroon op het werk zijn, anders moet ik het als verwoed wandelaar misschien wel eens te voet doen.

Ik raad deze beklimming zeker aan, erg gaaf om te doen en echt wel pittig. Ga heel vroeg weg voordat ze mensen er aan het werk zijn. Dus met zonsopgang in de zomer (zo rond 5"30) dan is er niemand, dan kan je ongezien naar bovenen terug.

De employees van het museum en de trein beginnen rond 7:45 , dan moet je weg zijn. ;-) succes,

Once a year the mountain is open to the public to climb, this year I believe on June 25.

Een keer per jaar is de berg open voor publiek om hem te beklimmen, dit jaar geloof ik op 25 juni.
