Col de Pré Long, Belledonne, French Alps
The climb from Lancey is in the shade in the morning, at least as far as le Mas Julien. Afterwards it is pretty exposed but the road to the power station at the head of the valley has been resurfaced.
A col du Baure from home. It is only possible every 2 or 3 years and you have to seize the day.
Col des Ayes x-press
42 minutes for the whole Col, that's a VAM of 959, 17m15 for the part Theys -> Col des Ayes for a VAM of 1043. I obviously took the first part of the climb easy leaving it for the second section.
Col des Mouilles north side
Climb from Brignoud to Laval. The first part of the climb to the hairpin is quite steep then it flattens a bit up to Laval and there is some tree cover in places in the summer.
Coming of age
21 years since I first toured to this iconic summit in the Belledonne range. The gear has certainly evolved in that time...
Cime de la Valette de Prals from Fenestre
Climb the road towards la Madone de Fenestre to the Vacheries de Devanse, just after (WP 353) take a walking trail that climbs to the SE through the woods to the Plan de Prals.
Col de Comberousse by the Gleyzin valley
The large Gleyzin valley is clearly visible from the valley as far as Chambery. It keeps snow cover late and is skiable into May with a reasonable amount of portage (a mountain bike can help).
Trainer Couloirs of the Jas de Lievres
At the southern end of the ski resort of Prapoutel - Les 7 Laux the Jas des Lièvres and the Combe de Bedina have been spared ski lifts and only off piste skiers using the Lac drag lift disturb the pea
Orionde with the Grimp
Today was a club day guiding for the Grimpeurs des Alpes. We'd originally planned a route in the Chartreuse but that was back in December for the program.
Combe de Leatel
if the snow cover is sufficient try to follow the path through the forest to the cross country ski trails at 1420 meters.
