This is a rather long, very smooth climb,
relatively easy with the steepest kilometer having a slope of 8%.
It is perfectly suitable for race bikers.
The road is relatively small with little traffic,
offers nice though not exciting scenery and fair road conditions.
My profile starts where the road to the Col de la Cayolle splits from the route to the Col d'Allos,
~2 km from Barcelonnette.
Immediately, the slope is 7-8%,
which is typical for the entire tour.
The most noticeable exception is the part beginning after 6 km, just before Les Agneliers,
which is less steep (3-5%).
A few kilometers after Les Angeliers a view opens on the route to the Col de la Cayolle-north
with the Cime de la Bonette in the background.
