Stories, information and comments from Col de la Faucille climbers
Story by Chris Patient from , Switzerland, submitted on 25/08/2014
This is the "easier" side of the Faucille ,although if you start in Bellegarde it is another story altogether and this section is the sting in the tail.

I did this climb starting from Mijoux on a Sunday afternoon when there was a lot of traffic and I found it quite unpleasant as the road surface is not that great and there is not much space for impatient passing vehicles and roaring motorbikes. However on a quite weekday it is a good steady climb in the shade of the trees although not as spectacular as the other side from Gex.
