I was fairly young when i did the and I had already done allot of climbs the days before and I was very tired! The day we did this was very hot!, the first part is a nice constant gradient but I was finding it hard! But once you get to the village of vars there are a few down hills which made my get my act together! Once through the next village it kicks up towards the top but it was nice and cool. Nice cafe and souvenir shop at the top. Spent the rest of the day chilling at the Embrum lake!

19km of climb. The beginning is nicely treelined. Some small villages (the different parts of Var)with it''s ski resorts along the way. It was hot with no chance of taking on more water until very near the end. All in all a good prelude for longer climbs.
