Col de Pontis-south

Profile Col de Pontis-south

The climb to the Col de Pontis from Cimetière (cemetery) de Ubaye is not long (5.2 km) but with an effective slope of almost 10% (9.9% to be exact) it is pretty steep. Eight of the ten 500 meter segments have a gradient of 9, 10 or 11%. Also, some of the many hairpin bends are considerably steeper. Only a section with a length of about 200 meters, reached after more than two kilometers of cycling, and some sections in the last kilometer are relatively easy. The ride offers views on rugged mountains, especially in the east. In the valley lies the great Lac de Serre-Ponçon with its beautiful turquoise water surface. The asphalt is horrible (2020).
