Enjoyed this beautiful climb a couple of days after going up to Huez. While this has none pf the racing heritage, it offers stunning views (in fact much prettier than the Alpe d’Huez), very little traffic (the road is a dead end at the small village of la Berarde, meaning very little motor traffic) and the road has been resurfaced recently. Just watch for stray rocks when descending as there’s a fair amount along the way.
Lesser known but a little gem. Not too testing Since despite the length the gradients are mostly reasonably tame (certainly compared to Huez), meaning anyone can enjoy it, while for the fitter climbers it represents a chance to go for it.
