Col du Galbier via Col d’Albanne

An alternate route to Col du Galibier from the Maurienne valley without taking Col du Télégraphe – not easy. Map, profiles, photos. Galibier was closed above the tunnel, but I managed to get to the Col.

Tour de France – Galibier

Col du Galibier via Col du Telegraphe is the biggest climb in France in terms of altitude gain. I can get to the base of Telegraphe from home in an hour forty-five – as it starts right next to an autoroute – sweet.
