Do not be fooled by the average gradient! Riding from Servances the Chevreres proper only starts once you get past Miellin. That makes it short (3.5k) and extremely sharp, with average gradients of 11+ and 10+ in the penultimate kilometres. The gradient is pretty variable too, with some seriously steep, sustained sections. Put plainly, it''s a little beast, but it''s also a useful link for Ballon and Planche loops, so something of a necessary evil. Forewarned is - as so often - forearmed. Take it gently and it won''t bite you: but get a little bit cocky and it''s steep enough and long enough to hurt - badly!

I will hate this col for the rest of my life. Past Mielin it becomes steep and never goes below 10%, with several stretches of 15-20%. This was my third climb if the day, and I had to stop twice on my way up.
It isn''t compensated by nice views or anything. I believe I would have been able to de la planche des belles filles, if this one would have had the same heighth but with a ''normal'' slope.
