Stories, information and comments from Col de Cenise climbers
Story by Janis from , Latvia, submitted on 26/08/2009
First of all the climb begins in Puze. Actually it is the only road up so you can really miss it. The climb really is insane. If you dont have your triple you must be really fit and on top of your game. The climb starts really from the top how ever the rally nasty parts begins in the last third of the climb. Few sections in the last part of the climb are not paved so be prepared. If you want to go to the top be warned that last kilometer is gravel and rocks so be careful. This climb will really test your climbing abilities and will take you to silent and sort of untouched part of Alps. I loved it and recommend it!
