This is not a very difficult ascent with only
270 climb effort points, 391 meters to climb
and a maximum slope of 6%.
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.
