Col de Pierre Carrée – FlaineBy Will • Feb 27th, 2009 • Category: Climbs, Cycling
At 1844 metres, Col de Pierre Carrée — just above Flaine ski station — is the highest road I know in the area that is usually cleared all winter.
Apart from the first few kilometres, it is rarely that steep. But at more than 20 kms uphill, and ~1350 metres (~4400 feet) of ascent it’s still a huge and beautiful climb.
