Story by Tim Deegan from Yeovil, United Kingdom, submitted on 13/07/2011
Not a steep climb, but long! We did this last August on our way up the Galibier. It turned out to be the first cold weekend in months :( Most disconcertingly, some of the older tunnels on the way up from Les Clapiers are poorly lit and one of them had no lights whatsoever for a 50m section in the middle. Having foolishly brought none myself, I had to ride in total darkness for this section- I was unable to see my bike or the road in front of me at all, just rode straight towards where the feeble orange bulbs resumed asap before a car came rushing up behind :-O I strongly advise you to take some lights for this ride!

I found this extremely tough, not overly steep but does drag on. Really this climb starts at Vizille which would make for a muderous ride! I started from Bourg DOisans and was relying on my memory of a trip in the car 12 years ago, however my memory served me badly and I was expect the Col and the start of the Galibier to be forever just around the corner. When I got to Villar Darene and it still said 8k to go I fell apart and stopped two or three times. Had a sore knee and gave up about 1 to 2 km up the Galibier after reaching the Col du Lauteret. Beautiful mountains particularly over to the right if you can manage to look as you grovel. Teach me to bite of more than I can chew after only 3 x 3 hour rides this year! Can only dream of obtaining enough fitness to do The Marmotte!

Absolutely beautiful climb. Mentally tough though as it goes on for a lot of miles!! It also gets very steep towards the end. When you reach the summit all is worth it. I would fully recommend this climb.
