Stories, information and comments from Col de Ramaz via Mieussy climbers
Story by Ron Evans from Les Gets, France, submitted on 10/08/2014
The only way this is a 2.8% gradient is start measuring a long way before the start of the climb. This is tough whichever way you go over the top. I always approach from the Mieussy side and it''s about 13k of hard climbing with a few 1k stretches as you near the top at 9%. As you enter the 2nd half you go under avalanche covers and enter a tunnel - gradient is 9%! If the lights are out in the tunnel it''s pitch black as you can''t see the end (approx 390m long)..... to be fair lights have only been out once when I''ve done this climb. Strange riding in the dark with no feeling of movement. Once you exit the tunnel another 9% section and then levels out for last couple of k with a 4 / 5% gradient over the top through Sommand ski resort. Drop down the other side and you come out on the Les Gets / Taninges "main" road. 4k steady 5% climb back up to Les Gets. If you''re going back to Taninges stay on the "back road" which is the alternative climb that starts in Taninges. Narrow technical descent so be careful.
