In terms of percentages and length a nice col, but on this side only the first and last 5km are worthwhile. From your route the Cohennoz leaves is actually a 'route forestiere' and the road itself is closed. I rode on and if you are a bit adventurous it is quite a nice climb. You are constantly in the forest on a bad road where in some parts the asphalt is washed away until you reach ski resort of Bisanne 1500. From there the road is wide until 2km from the top where you turn onto the ski slope where you only have to watch out for hikers and cyclists. Last 2km are the trickiest with percentages above 10% but with beautiful views of the ski resorts and Mont Blanc. Better from Quiege or Villard.

Qua percentages en lengte een mooie col, maar langs deze kant zijn enkel de eerste en laatste 5km de moeite. Vanaf je route de Cohennoz verlaat is het eigenlijk een 'route forestiere' en de weg is zelf afgesloten. Ik ben doorgereden en als je wat avontuurlijk bent is het best een mooie klim. Je zit constant in het bos op een slechte weg waar op sommige stukken het asfalt weggespoeld is tot je skioord van Bisanne 1500 bereikt. Vanaf daar is het brede weg tot 2km van de top waar je de skipiste opdraait waar je enkel nog moet opletten voor wandelaars en fietsers. Laatste 2km zijn de lastigste met percentages boven de 10% maar met prachtige uitzichten op de skigebieden en de Mont Blanc. Beter vanuit Quiege of Villard.
