Story by Beck from Dublin, Ireland, submitted on 14/07/2015
Great long climb which I''ve done a few times. Last time, started off in the sun among poppies and ended up in snowstorm at top. Not that hard but nice village half way up to get refreshments but nothing at the top. A long straight section kind of demoralises you and then you enter the switchbacks of the last five kms. Good, but you have to come back down it.

Enjoyed this climb - actually only did as a warm up for Mont Ventoux - not in the same league as that mind!!! Starts off nice with some decent hairpins, then eases after 4-5k through some villages with even a short downhill section. After this it heads out through woodland up to the ski resorts - I hadn''t checked it out beforehand so wasn''t sure what to expect - steepens up again towards the top with some great views. Worth doing.

This is a nice steady climb - not a classic by any means but a nice way to spend a spare couple of hours
