Coordinates: 45.2025,6.444443

Ridden: 2010 & 2018

A fairly non descript pass. Perhaps it was the bad weather that prevented us from getting whatever good views there were to be had on the ascent from St. Michel but it just seemed like a road that got higher and then dropped a little on the short descent to Valloire. The ascent from St. Michel is 7.5 miles at an average of 7.3% and the ascent from Valloire is 2.5 miles at an average 3.4%. Overall just a means of getting to the Col du Galibier from the north.
