I really enjoyed today’s climb. The weather was too nice not to ride – so i told myself just to climb at a steady pace – and as occasionally happens, I felt pretty good.
If you like steep hairpins then this is the climb for you. It’s hard sometimes to see how steep a road is in a photo, but these should give some idea.
The Col is actually above the tiny village of Croisette – turn left towards Cret and when you see the orientation table (labeling all the Alps in clear view) you are there. Up top there are terrific views in all directions (Juras, Alps, Lake Geneva, etc).
