After reaching the top of the col de porte you have about one km to relax. Afterwards it never gets easy. The road is narrow and not that nice, but the nice view makes up for it as you steadily surpass the treeline. When i did the climb at he end of september there was not a lot of traffic, but I wouldn''t know for the summer months because than there''s a lot o hiking going on. When the road stops going uphill, it''s just one km to the top. You''ll find there a beautiful view and a very cosy chalet.
My personal climb rating:
