Stories, information and comments from Lac Luitel climbers
Story by Lennaert Steen from Zwolle, The Netherlands, submitted on 18/08/2015
Also called Col du Luitel. Several times i climbed this "magic" col. In my childhood this col was my worst nightmare. With 42x26 is was very hard to make it to the top. The climb isn''t long but is constantly steep. You get never rest and there are almost no hairpins. Just climbing and climbing.

20 years later I climbed with 39x30 and it was again a struggle. If you do the climb after a longer trip it''s a really challenge.
