Stories, information and comments from Col du Buis climbers
Story by Rein Menke from De Meern, The Netherlands, submitted on 27/09/2008
The small road of the Col de Felines starts very steep like an Ardennes-climb with percentages up to 15% in the first km. Then the climb gets very nice and steady up to the col. The descent to La Serre must be used to recover for the tough 4 km up to the Col de Buis. Watch out for the dangerous ditch all along the road just before the last turn in the descent. The climb up to the Col de Buis is tough with prolonged stretches with percentages over 14% and peaks up to about 18%. The col itself isnt more than just a finishline on the road.
