This is not a very difficult ascent with only 220 climb effort points, 391 meters to climb and a maximum slope of 6% for the 500 meter intervals. However, it is a pleasure to cycle it up mainly because of the 14 hairpin bends and perhaps also, if you like it, because the slope is almost constant. You may also encounter quite some other cyclists here since this col constitutes the connection between the Vallée de Vologne in the north and the Vallée de la Thur in the south. The sides of the road are densely forested, so views on the Vallée de la Thur are rare, at least in summer. The beginning of the trip presented here lies near the church of the village of Wildenstein.
