Climb Summary


Climb Summary

This gorgeous climb begins in Chateau-Ville-Vieille in the Alpes-Cote d’Azur provence of France and ends at the border of France and Italy (the Italian side is an equally wonderful climb - Colle dell Agnello).  This is not one of your most difficult European climbs, but what it lacks in challenge it makes up for in beauty.

The climb is moderately long at 12.7 miles and rises to a respectable 8,700’, gaining 4,220’ at 6.24% average grade.  The grade is never hits double figures and is relatively constant with the steepest mile hitting only 8.5%.  

Clearly visible from the roadway to our right during the first few miles of the climb is Demoiselle Coiffé which is a French Natural Monument created by the erosion of glacial deposits - be sure to stop and admire this beautiful creation of nature.
