Upper part with short bends to the church is nice and spicy. Descent to La Bastide is fine. The dead end last piece to the real top is not really necessary in my opinion.... read more

Upper part with short bends to the church is nice and spicy. Descent to La Bastide is fine. The dead end last piece to the real top is not really necessary in my opinion.

Bovenste gedeelte met korte bochten tot het kerkje is lekker pittig. Afdaling naar La Bastide is prima. Het doodlopende laatste stukje naar de echte top is niet echt noodzakelijk wat mij betreft.

Nice climb. There is a campsite on both sides of the climb. We stayed at RCN La Bastide campsite. It's fun to drive up this climb from both sides if you have some spare time.

Leuke klim. Aan beide kanten van de klim ligt een camping. Wij zaten op camping RCN La Bastide. Leuk om deze klim van beide kanten op te rijden als je even tijd over hebt.

A spicy second part. At the end several wrong hairpin bends so the climbing percentages are well above 10%. In the beginning with reserve up. Always have some left for the small bend at about 200 meters before the summit.

Een pittig tweede deel. Op het laatst diverse haardspeldbochten die verkeerd liggen waardoor de klimpercentages ruim boven de 10% uit komen. In het begin met reserve omhoog. Altijd nog wat overhouden voor het knikje op circa 200 meter voor de top.

Flinke kuitenbijter, mooi aanloop om met een pittig eindstuk de berg te kunnen voltooien !

A tough climb, the sting is in the tail.

Pittige klim, venijn zit in de staart.

First half is flat, but the last kilometer and a half hurts. Halfway there is a possibility to cut off a few hundred meters but then you cycle a hundred meters with a gradient of 18%. Combine with the rocher from the d11.

Eerste helft voor je gevoel vlak, maar de laatste anderhalve kilometer doet pijn. Halverwege nog de mogelijkheid om een paar honderd meter af te snijden maar dan fiets je honderd meter met een stijgingspercentage van 18%. Combineren met de rocher vanaf de d11.
