Stories, information and comments from Ballon de Servance climbers
Story by Pascal Boone from Steenhuffel, Belgium, submitted on 29/07/2012
Agreeing to what Jacob Verroken says : ''very though climb in the Vosges. Push too hard the first couple of kilometers and you will pay the price on the much steeper second part. Dont expect too much of a view as the climb never leaves the forest. Not even on the summit which was a bit of a disappointment.''

Since the 2012 Tour de France stage you can combine it first with La Planche des Belles filles which starts at the same point.

Very though climb in the Vosges. Push too hard the first couple of kilometers and you will pay the price on the much steeper second part. Dont expect too much of a view as the climb never leaves the forest. Not even on the summit which was a bit of a disappointment. Combine this climb with Ballon dAlsace for a nice 70ish km trip, but beware, I personally thought the Ballon de Servance much harder than its much more illustrious neighbour.

One of the harder climbs in the Vosges. Nice and quiet, starting from Plancher-les-Mines, a small village with little movement. Starting easily, following the brook Rahin. Never more then 5% before the first hairpin. But then it starts and it gets quite hard with long 10%+ passages and pieces of 12-13% while the road gets smaller and smaller. Did this climb end of September and didnt see one car on the way up (only one biker, from the neighbourhood). Its you and the trees surrounding. Views on the neighbourhood are few cause youre actually kind of sucked into a funnel to the top.
