This is a climb with hardly any shade, so watch out for the heat. On the other hand, it can be quite windy and cold at the top. So take plenty of drinks and a jacket.

This is a climb with hardly any shade, so watch out for the heat. On the other hand, it can be quite windy and cold at the top. So take plenty of drinks and a jacket.
The detour to the glacier valley of Zêzere is more than worth it. The perfect U valley with first some hairpin bends and then a long straight line.

Dit is een klim met amper schaduw, kijk dus uit voor de hitte. Anderzijds kan het boven flink waaien en koud zijn. Neem dus genoeg drank en een jekje mee.
De omweg naar het gletjserdal van Zêzere is meer dan de moeite waard. Het perfecte U-dal met eerst wat haarspeldbochten en dan één lange recht lijn.
