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.
A challenging, little known climb, on quiet roads. Sandwiched between Col du Galibier and Col de la Croix de Fer. In summer, bring a mountain bike and go even higher.
