Col du Galibier via the Col du Télégraphe

1679 Points – The hardest of Savoie’s Cycloclimbing Challenges. Outstanding views of the Ecrins Mountains await you at the summit. Kilometre posts and a timing system have been installed so cyclists can time their ascent. Contact the tourist office for details.

The Col du Galibier via the Col du Télégraphe is a true giant of a climb and much harder than any other climb in France or Navarre. You have been warned!
